The number of new confirmed coronavirus cases on Teesside has passed 200 for the third day running.

The rise has continued after 238 positive results were announced yesterday.

The number of cases in Stockton has risen above 2,000, becoming the first local authority area on Teesside to do so.

Middlesbrough recorded the highest daily spike, with 82 new covid-19 infections, as its overall total also nears the 2,000 mark.

In Redcar and Cleveland there were 37 new cases, bringing the overall total here to 1,269.

 

An investigation is ongoing after grave diggers at Eston cemetery struck an electric cable carrying 11,000 volts while using a mechanical digger.

Although no-one was injured, the accident caused a power cut to 3,500 surrounding homes and businesses

It was one of 67 accidents were recorded by Redcar and Cleveland Council in the past year involving staff injuring themselves while at work revealed in a new report.

An internal investigation found that although the land had been prepared for burials in 2018 by an external company, the cable had been missed.

 

A proposed caravan park will not be developed in Saltburn after an appeal over refused planning permission was thrown out.

The Camping and Caravanning Club plans for a new camp in the seaside town had attracted outrage from local residents amid claims it could turn into the town into the “new Skegness”.

Others criticised the location, citing concerns over increased traffic and said it was not in keeping with a Victorian spa town, with 329 objections lodged with Redcar and Cleveland Council along with a petition of 1,718 signatures.

There was also concern expressed by the likes of the National Trust which said the development would fundamentally alter the landscape character of the area and have significant visual impact.
