As the country remains in lockdown due to concern over Coronavirus, the number of cases in our area has more than doubled.

According to the latest figures published yesterday evening by Public Health England, there are currently 7 confirmed cases in Redcar and Cleveland, out of a local population of just under 137,000 people. That figure has increased from 3 at the start of the week.

There are currently 7 cases confirmed in Middlesbrough, a similar rise from 3 on Monday.

 

A raft of new measures have been taken by Redcar and Cleveland Council to reduce the impact of coronavirus while keeping vital services running.

Following the Government’s announcement that people should stay at home, the council has announced measures designed to help people stay safe and reduce the pressure on the NHS, while keeping all of its statutory services operational.

The new measures include stopping green waste collections, closing Dunsdale tip, pausing non-essential roadworks, restrictions on funerals and cremations, suspension of grass cutting, closing allotments and stopping Local Link buses.

However, public parks will stay open so people can exercise once a day.

 

Police have charged two men with burglary dwelling and theft and two counts of theft of a motor vehicle following an incident at the weekend.

The charges were made in connection with a reported 2 in 1 burglary at a property on Rose Cottage Gardens in Middlesbrough on Sunday.

Two vehicles were reportedly taken from the property, which were both recovered by officers.

Officers from the Road Policing Unit, the Dog Unit and Response dealt with the reported incident with assistance from colleagues from the National Police Air Service.

The two men appeared at Teesside Magistrates Court yesterday, Monday 23rd March 2020.
