Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council has confirmed that a plan to mass test the entire town of Redcar for covid-19 has been called off as the Government focuses its attention on Liverpool instead.

It was announced last week that those living in the TS10 postcode would be invited to get a test whether they have symptoms or not, in an attempt to catch asymptomatic cases and quickly drive down covid-19 infection rates.

The trial was due to start on November 23, with the Army coming in to help with logistics.

However the council have now confirmed the trial will not be going ahead as planned.

 

Police have searched the area surrounding a Teesside lake in an attempt to find a missing man.

Detectives say they are becoming increasingly concerned for the welfare of Wayne Newton.

The 41-year-old, from Middlesbrough, disappeared almost two weeks ago.

He last seen at around 1pm on Saturday, October 24 in the area of the Viewley Centre in Hemlington.

Cleveland Police launched an investigation after Wayne failed to return home.

He is described as white, of medium build and around 6ft. He has short, brown hair and blue eyes.

Wayne was wearing grey jeans, white trainers and a dark hooded top with the word Polo written in white on the back.

 

A cliff top restaurant in Saltburn has been refused planning permission over fears that iconic views of Teesside’s coastline would be lost. 

Developers Oleus Leisure aimed to bring a venue to the unused look-out with a single storey structure and split-level decked terraces built into the cliff-face off Marine Parade. 

However at a meeting yesterday, Redcar and Cleveland’s planning committee turned down the bid, voting 12 to one refuse planning permission. 

More than 290 objection comments were received by the authority with worries about the loss of views, the impact on parking and harm the eatery could bring to Saltburn’s conservation area.
