The number of Coronavirus cases in our area has again shown an increase in the past 24 hours.

According to the latest figures published yesterday by Public Health England, there are currently 259 confirmed cases in Redcar and Cleveland, out of a local population of just under 137,000 people.

That's up from 239 cases yesterday.

There are currently 451 cases confirmed in Middlesbrough, a figure which has also risen, up from 427 yesterday.

 

Hundreds of steelworkers will resume work next week as production resumes after being paused due to the coronavirus.

Operations at British Steel's plant in Skinningrove were halted at the start of the month in a move which saw workers put on furlough.

The newly rescued firm announced it was 'pausing' operations at its East Cleveland Special Profiles site initially for three weeks.

It has now been confirmed that around around 300 furloughed staff are due to return to work from Monday.

Operations at British Steel's other site in our area - the beam mill at Lackenby - are not affected.

The firm employs around 700 across both Teesside sites.

 

Police have removed an uninsured and potentially dangerous vehicle from the streets after reports of the vehicle allegedly being used in criminal activity.

Officers recovered the silver Ford Focus on Ainsworth Way in Ormesby at around lunchtime on Thursday.

The vehicle had no insurance and was not registered.

Police and partners say they will always act upon information supplied by the public, so if you have any information regarding criminal activity in your area please call Cleveland Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
