The number of reported Coronavirus cases in our area has once again shown an increase over the weekend.

According to the latest figures published yesterday by Public Health England, there have now been 330 confirmed Coronavirus cases in Redcar and Cleveland, out of a local population of just under 137,000 people.

That's up from 317 confirmed cases on Friday.

There are currently 566 cases confirmed in Middlesbrough, that's another increase, up from 554 cases on Friday.

 

A man from our area is in hospital with serious injuries after a crash on the North Yorkshire Moors.

North Yorkshire Police are now appealing for information after what it's describing as a serious single car collision.

It occurred around 1pm on Saturday on Knott Road, north of Rosedale Abbey, and involved a blue Audi A3.

One of the vehicle’s occupants, a 21 year old man from Middlesbrough, was transported to James Cook University Hospital by air ambulance with serious injuries.

Two other occupants of the vehicle were arrested and released under investigation.

 

A local council targeted in a cyber-attack says it now has 90% of its computer systems working again.

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council was hit by a ransomware attack in February which left its website inoperable and some officials having to use pen and paper to keep services running.

Engineers have prioritised essential systems and are working on the rest.

A spokesman said that the attack has not stopped the council responding to coronavirus or providing key services.

The council has previously said there was no indication any private information had been compromised.
