Another 121 new cases of coronavirus have been confirmed on Teesside.

Hopes have been raised that our area could see a move into Tier 2 covid restrictions in time for Christmas.

...and the Redcar Coastguard Rescue Team have been called into action after a suspicious package was spotted on a beach in our area.

 

Another 121 new cases of coronavirus have been confirmed on Teesside.

Middlesbrough saw the biggest increase in new cases, with 38, with Stockton following closely behind with 37.

Here in Redcar and Cleveland we had the smallest rise in cases with 22.

The overall Teesside figure is almost a third less than on Tuesday, when 175 new cases were recorded.

The updated figures came as the four-week national lockdown was lifted.

Teesside has now entered Tier 3 - the 'Very High' category of local lockdown.

 

Hopes have been raised that our area could see a move into Tier 2 covid restrictions in time for Christmas.

Cllr Mary Lanigan, the leader of Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council, said she hoped that the current 'Tier 3' restrictions could be removed withn weeks.

Cllr Lanigan welcomed the fall in the borough’s infection rate - it's currently around 140 cases per 100,000 of the population, much lower than when lockdown began - but said a move down the tiers would only be possible if people continued to obey the current tight rules.

 

The Redcar Coastguard Rescue Team have been called into action after a suspicious package was spotted on a beach in our area.

Just after 1.30 on Tuesday morning the Redcar team were tasked by the Humber operations room at Bridlington to reports of a member of the public who had seen a suspicious unidentified package on the beach between Marske and Saltburn.

When the team arrived at Marske bridleway the first informant was present and took the team to the object which turned out to be a Fall Arrest Unit washed up on the beach.

The team took the unit from the beach and deposited it near the path on top of the dunes so the council can dispose of it properly.

After that the team was stood down.
