Our area has been identified as a location where coronavirus cases are on the rise, according to the latest figures.

Public Health England has identified Redcar and Cleveland as an area which has seen an increase in cases of Covid-19, up from 0.7 cases per 100,000 people to 5.1 in the past seven days.

The figures follow the local lockdown in Leicester, which saw shops shutter and schools earlier this week.

 

Day trippers planning a visit to Whitby as lockdown restrictions are eased this weekend are being warned that safety comes first.

Bars and amusement arcades will reopen today following the coronavirus closure.

But to allow for social distancing, Pier Road, which is one of Whitby's main roads, will be closed from 10.30am today and tomorrow to help maintain social distancing.

Pier Road is home to a number of cafes, restaurants, arcades and fish and chip shops including popular Magpie Cafe.

 

Dozens of childrens' playgrounds across Redcar and Cleveland are re-opening today as the Covid-19 lockdown eases.

More litter collection patrols will also be operational in coastal areas including Saltburn and Redcar and more bins have been installed right across the borough.

However, residents and visitors are being urged to continue to follow social distancing guidelines and plan ahead before leaving home.

Signs are being erected at all the playgrounds with clear guidance for parents and guardians including explaining that social distancing rules should be followed.

It is also suggested that parents bring hand sanitiser or wipes to clean children’s hands and they may wish to wipe play equipment.
