The total number of reported Coronavirus cases in our area has shown another slight increase since yesterday, according to official figures.

According to the latest figures published yesterday by Public Health England, there have now been 415 confirmed Coronavirus cases in Redcar and Cleveland, out of a local population of just under 137,000 people.

That figure has increased from 413 confirmed cases since yesterday.

There are have been 673 cases confirmed in Middlesbrough, that figure has also risen slightly, up from 670 yesterday.

 

A 33 year old man from Eston has been arrested on suspicion of recklessly endangering the safety of an aircraft after a laser was shone at a police helicopter which was assisting a search for a missing person.

The incident happened shortly before 11pm on Wednesday, in the Teesville area.

A police spokesperson told Zetland FM that the incident could have easily proven dangerous for the pilot and those inside the aircraft, who were assisting with the search for a missing person at the time.

He added that this type of behaviour will not be tolerated and officers will be looking to prosecute anyone carrying out acts such as this which can put lives in danger.

 

Police have issued a reminder to keep dogs on their leads near to farms after a rise in reports of sheep attacks.

In recent weeks there has been a rise in attacks on sheep, after people walking their dogs have gone into areas where sheep and cows are grazing.

Officers say that to help avoid incidents, dog owners who may be out exercising their dogs in fields and near to farms during lockdown should keep them on a lead to ensure that they cannot get too close to the animals.
