The number of coronavirus cases across Teesside has continued to rise.
Another 217 cases of coronavirus have been recorded across Teesside, accoring to the latest figures published yesterday by Public Health England.
Middlesbrough 's total rose by another 61 cases, whilst Stockton saw another 84 cases.
Here in Redcar and Cleveland, there were a further 35 new cases confirmed.
Fireworks estimated to be worth around £1,500 have been seized at an address in the Eston area.
The items were seized as part of a joint operation between Neighbourhood Police, Trading Standards and Licensing - working on intelligence from the community and colleagues at Cleveland Fire Brigade UK.
The operation was just one of the ways in which police are targeting the suspected illegal sale of fireworks and antisocial behaviour involving fireworks.
Since the start of this month the force has received 29 reports of fireworks being misused.
The volunteers of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team have been called into action in our area.
We were contacted by Cleveland Police in the early hours of Tuesday morning with a request to search land surrounding Roseberry Topping for a man reportedly missing in the area.
Team members were called out from home and one of the team's Land Rover Ambulances was deployed.
Once at the rendezvous-point the search parties, together with the Police, then commenced searches of their allocated areas.
Just after midday the man was located by a member of the public in woods near to Guisborough, and the searches were ended.
