A further 269 positive covid-19 tests have been confirmed on Teesside.

The figure is lower than the 387 cases recorded on Wednesday and among the lowest increases in recent weeks.

Stockton remains the worst affected local authority area, and it also had the highest daily rise, with 93 new cases of the virus.

In Middlesbrough there were 76 new confirmed cases, whilst here in Redcar and Cleveland there were 57.

 

A woman has been arrested after she reportedly scratched an officer on the neck after being asked why she was not wearing a face covering in a shopping centre.

Officers on foot patrol in the Hill Street Shopping Centre in Middlesbrough had been engaging with members of the public in relation to coronavirus regulations around 11am yesterday morning.

Police approached the woman and asked if she had a medical reason for not wearing a face covering.

The woman then became verbally abusive and shouted at the officers before refusing to provide her details.

As the woman was led out of the shopping centre, she then reportedly scratched the officer to the left side of his neck.

The 47-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of assaulting an emergency worker and she was taken into police custody.

 

Police are appealing to trace a man who is wanted in connection with an allegation of breach of a non-molestation order.

26-year-old Jordan Cane is described as being 5ft 10” tall, of medium build, with short, cropped brown hair and facial hair.

He is known to frequent the Lingdale area.

Anyone who may have information as to Jordan’s whereabouts is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
