The total number of reported Coronavirus cases in our area has once again shown a slight increase in the past 24 hours, according to official figures.

According to the latest figures published yesterday by Public Health England, there have now been 368 confirmed Coronavirus cases in Redcar and Cleveland, out of a local population of just under 137,000 people.

That compares to 366 cases yesterday.

There are currently 626 cases confirmed in Middlesbrough, that's another small increase, up from 624 cases yesterday.

 

Police have appealed for witnesses to a crash which left four people in hospital - including a 16-year-old who is fighting for life.

The accident left a major road in the North Ormesby area of Middlesbrough closed for several hours on Thursday, after a collision between an orange off road motorbike and a red Ford Mondeo car at the junction of Ormesby Road, Longlands Road and Kings Road.

Cleveland Police have confirmed four people were taken to hospital.

Two males aged 16 and 26 who were riding the motorbike are still in James Cook University Hospital being treated for serious injuries.

The 16-year-old's condition is critical but stable.

A man and a woman, both in their twenties, who had been in the Mondeo, were treated for minor injuries and released.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101.

 

People thinking of travelling to Whitby when lockdown restrictions are eased on Wednesday have been told not to bother.

Scarborough and Whitby's MP has said he has been contacted by concerned residents who are worried that the area is set to get an influx of visitors.

Robert Goodwill said that following Prime Minister Boris Johnson's announcement last night that people can now travel to other places to exercise, more clarity is needed to stop the coast filling up with daytrippers.

And with less than a one hour drive to the seaside town, people from our area frequently make the trip to Whitby.
