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

According to the latest figures published yesterday by Public Health England, there have been currently 311 confirmed Coronavirus cases in Redcar and Cleveland, out of a local population of just under 137,000 people.

That's up from 297 confirmed cases yesterday.

There are currently 541 cases confirmed in Middlesbrough, that's another sharp increase, up from 509 cases yesterday.

 

Two men will appear at court on drugs charges after heroin and cocaine were allegedly found during a police stop.

Officers from Redcar Neighbourhood Policing Team stopped a vehicle on Bankfields Road in Eston on Wednesday and carried out a search.

Suspected heroin and cocaine were reportedly discovered in the vehicle, along with a "shotgun cartridge".

An address on South Street, Eston, was also searched, where police found further suspected class A drugs.

Two men were arrested in connection with the searches.

 

Talks have been held over a new bank basing its headquarters at unoccupied offices in the centre of Middlesbrough. 

North-east bank GBB is set to be launched later this year - and Middlesbrough council chiefs have revealed productive talks have been held about it establishing its main HQ in Centre Square. 

It is understood the bank expects to employ a team of about 60 people when it launches - including bankers, accountants and marketing staff - with leaders promising more than 120 positions within five years. 

A final decision on where it will be based is expected in the next three months.
