The total number of reported Coronavirus cases in our area has once again shown an increase over the weekend, according to official figures.

According to the latest figures published yesterday by Public Health England, there have now been 366 confirmed Coronavirus cases in Redcar and Cleveland, out of a local population of just under 137,000 people.

That compares to 356 cases on Friday.

There are currently 624 cases confirmed in Middlesbrough, that's another increase, up from 615 cases on Friday.

 

The coastguard has issued a warning after a couple were spotted on the cliff edge at Saltburn on Saturday afternoon.

One local resident posted the video on Facebook of the pair, reported to be a man and woman, who were observed walking down the cliff, and then appeared to sit down at the bottom, before returning up to the top of the cliff.

Their actions sparked a warning from the coastguard.

It's believed that the people involved in the incident at Huntcliff made their own way back to safety.

 

Britain's largest bird of prey has been spotted over Saltburn and Whitby - for the first time in 240 years.

Two white-tailed eagles have been seen soaring "over people's back gardens" and across the North York Moors.

The stunning birds, which have wing spans of up to two-and-a-half-metres, were last recorded in England in 1780, on the Isle of Wight - but were killed off illegally by humans.

A five-year programme by the Roy Dennis Wildlife Foundation and Forestry England to restore the lost species is under way.

It's hoped the birds will start to breed in the south of England.
