There are currently 9 cases confirmed in Middlesbrough, an increase of 2 since yesterday.

 

Further measures have been taken by Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council in response to the impact of the Coronavirus outbreak.

The Council announced yesterday that it has suspended charges in all its pay and display public car parks until further notice for the benefit of key workers who continue to travel to work at a time when most people remain at home.

In addition it has taken the decision to reopen all allotments across the borough.

The Council is encouraging all residents to follow the Government’s guidelines on social distancing and not to congregate at popular visitor destinations including the coast.

 

A man has been left with a court bill of over £850 after he was spotted throwing a wrapper on a footpath.

Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council prosecuted the Grangetown man for littering after he failed to pay a fixed penalty notice.

At Teesside Magistrates' Court on 16 March, Hill was fined £220 and ordered to pay a £32 victim surcharge in his absence.
