A further 239 coronavirus cases have been announced on Teesside.
Public Health England data released yesterday shows a rise in all four local authority areas.
Stockton made up for a large proportion of that figure, with 119 new positive cases.
In Middlesbrough there were 44 new cases, whilst here in Redcar and Cleveland there were 36.
Neighbourhood policing officers in Redcar have charged a 42 year old man with theft from a motor vehicle.
It comes after a report that electrical items were stolen from a Ford Focus in Herschell Street in the town over the weekend.
The man was arrested on Monday and was interviewed by officers and subsequently charged.
He has been released on conditional bail and is due to appear at Teesside Gap Court towards the end of November.
The first East Cleveland passenger rail service in 50 years has moved a major stop closer.
A study by global consultant firm Systra has found a "strong business case" for reviving the route between Saltburn and Boulby - and a lower price tag than first thought.
Currently only used for freight by the Boulby mine, a new service could link isolated communities such as Easington and Loftus direct with Newcastle or Cumbria bringing massive economic and tourism benefits.
A £46m bid to re-develop the line is due to be submitted to the Department for Transport this week, ahead of the next round of appraisals in November.
