The number of coronavirus cases confirmed on Teesside has dropped slightly as the area moves into lockdown.

Another 321 covid-19 cases were confirmed yesterday - 40 less than the previous day's total.

It's also a drop on the same day last week when 570 cases were recorded.

Stockton is again the worst affected area with another 142 announced in the Public Health England data yesterday evening.

Middlesbrough saw an increase with 74 new cases, whilst here in Redcar and Cleveland there were a further 65.

 

Motorists in Skelton will have access to a new formal car park facility early next year after councillors approved funding for the project.

The 30 space car park, which will initially be free, is being created on a brownfield site on the High Street after Redcar and Cleveland Council struck a deal to secure the land from previous owners Skelton and Gilling Estates.

Members of the local authority’s cabinet approved £300,000 worth of investment committed from the Tees Valley Combined Authority-funded ‘Welcome to Redcar and Cleveland’ programme.

The cash will supplement £35,000 already committed by the council to the scheme from a public realm allocation for Skelton.

 

Members of the public are once again being asked not to attend Remembrance Sunday events in Redcar and Cleveland this year as we head into lockdown - but instead take time at home to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

The ceremony at Redcar Cenotaph will be livestreamed on Facebook at 11am on Sunday 8 November for anyone to tune in and remember in silence.

The Government has also released guidance to the public and event organisers stressing that numbers at remembrance events should be kept to a minimum.

Organisers of services at all the borough’s cenotaphs have been asked to limit ceremonies to wreath-laying and residents are requested to stay at home.
