The government has confirmed that Teesside has been selected as one of eleven areas to provide vital feedback on the rollout of UK's track and trace coronavirus testing programme.

Public health teams Redcar and Cleveland and Middlesbrough will be among the first local authorities to report on their experience.

The Government has announced a £300m package to launch its UK-wide programme to launch the tracing system - in which a team of 20,000 nationally are tasked with tracking down all the contacts of any person infected with the coronavirus, to try and help break the chain of transmission.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has promised that the system will be up and running by June 1st.

 

A young couple who drove their car onto a beach yesterday morning have been branded "arrogant" and "stupid".

A black Mercedes became stuck on Redcar beach at around ten to eight yesterday morning.

The couple had driven around a hundred yards before becoming lodged in the sand.

The incident comes after council officials said that they will not be reopening car parks in our area ahead of the Bank Holiday weekend.
