The weekend has seen a drop in daily Covid cases on Teesside.

139 new covid-19 cases were confirmed in daily Public Health England figures published yesterday.

The numbers of confirmed new cases can be lower on a Sunday and Monday, taking into account the weekend.

However the drop comes after a week of rising numbers and rising infection rates, as all of Teesside went into 'Tier Two' local lockdown.

Middlesbrough recorded 50 new cases at the weekend, whilst Stockton recorded 32.

Here in Redcar and Cleveland there were 41 new cases.

 

A 41-year-old man is due to appear in court later today charged a number of offences after an alleged incident at the weekend.

The man is charged with theft from a vehicle, possession of a bladed article, going equipped and arrest by a constable for breaking or being likely to break bail conditions.

The man will appear in court following an alleged incident in the early hours of Saturday on Thornfield Road in Middlesbrough, whereby a car was reportedly broken into and police allegedly located a man in possession of a knife.

 

Teesside will not move into Tier Three 'local lockdown' this week as the number of new cases in the region begin to flatten.

"Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen said that Redcar and Cleveland, Middlesbrough, Stockton, Hartlepool, and Darlington will avoid the harshest restrictions for at least the next week.

"In a meeting with Downing Street set up by Mayor Houchen, local leaders were told the Government would not propose moving the five Tees Valley authorities from its current ‘high’ covid-19 alert level to the ‘very high’ category, for the time being.

"It's understood that the rest of the North-east will also stay in Tier Two for now."
