MP for Redcar, Jacob Young has confirmed he is self-isolating.
In a Facebook post, he said: "Yesterday, I got an email from NHS Test and Trace saying I have to self isolate until next Wednesday (25th) as I am a contact of someone who has tested positive.
"I will continue to work for my constituents during my isolation. But rather than asking questions from the Green Benches, I’ll be doing it from my kitchen.
"It’s important we all continue to follow the guidance to reduce the spread - get a test if we have symptoms and self isolate if we’re told to."
Police are appealing for information after a local business was burgled at the weekend.
The incident took place at The Watch Plug at Cargo Fleet Business Centre in Middlesbrough occurred between 9:30pm and 11:30pm.
A number of Rolex watches estimated to be worth hundreds of thousands of pounds were stolen from the premises as well as over £10,000 in cash.
Anyone with information regarding the burglary or anyone who may have been offered the items for sale is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
A parish council has been forced to cancel a Christmas lights switch-on parade.
Saltburn, Marske and New Marske Parish Council said covid-19 restrictions had led to the scrapping of the event in Saltburn, which was expected to be held early next month.
However it said an “army of volunteers” were still primed to install the town’s Christmas lights, which would be lit up at the start of December.
A number of new wraparound lights have been bought as a result of fund raising by the group the Friends of Saltburn, along with donations from the parish council and Redcar and Cleveland Council.
A Christmas tree provided by the parish council each year on Albion Terrace will be put in place in the next few weeks.
