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 376 confirmed Coronavirus cases in Redcar and Cleveland, out of a local population of just under 137,000 people.

That compares to 372 cases yesterday.

There are currently 630 cases confirmed in Middlesbrough, that's another small increase, up from 628 cases yesterday.

 

Our area has missed out on being the location for a multi-million pound operations and maintenance base for the world’s biggest wind farm.

Instead 200 new jobs will be directly created at the Port of Tyne by firms Equinor and SSE Renewables, who are behind the £3bn Dogger Farm wind project in the North Sea which will eventually provide five per cent of the UK’s electricity needs.

Teesside Airport could still be used for a proposed heliport to service work on the wind farm, construction of which began in January, however it will not now be the headquarters for the base.

 

Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council has thanked residents for keeping their distance when visiting Dunsdale Tip.

Since reopening last week, more than 1,700 cars have accessed the site. Strict rules had been brought in to protect the health and safety of the public and staff due to the threat of Covid-19. 

As expected in the first few days, queues formed early in the morning as people respected the social distancing measures, but the queues and demand soon dispersed as the day went on.

From tomorrow, vehicles that need permits to access Dunsdale will be able to do so. The site will be open to permit holders from 7am until 9am.

Permits are required for:

  • Vans or vehicles based on a van chassis;
  • Cars with trailers;
  • Campervans;
  • Flat bd transit type vehicles;
  • Flat bed 4x4 pick-up trucks.

Permits can be purchased at Dunsdale on the day costing £8.85 per visit, and the site only accepts card payments.
