More than 300 new coronavirus cases have been confirmed on Teesside in the past 24 hours.
Tuesday's data shows a rise in all four boroughs with a total of 327 cases.
Stockton recorded 125 new cases and remains the area with the most people being diagnosed with covid-19.
In Middlesbrough there were 64 new confirmed cases, whilst here in Redcar and Cleveland there have been a further 53.
Police were called to a report of a serious collision on the A173 between Guisborough and Great Ayton around 8:10am yesterday morning.
The incident involved a tanker and a Citroen C1 vehicle.
The 21-year-old male driver of the Citroen suffered serious injuries and he was taken to James Cook University Hospital where he remains whilst receiving treatment.
Any witnesses to the incident or anyone who may have seen the Citroen prior to the collision or may have dash cam footage is asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 101.
The volunteers of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were called into action in our area yesterday.
The team were contacted just after half past midnight by North Yorkshire Police requesting assistance at Hob Hole approximately two-miles west of Castleton following a report of a vehicle partially submerged in flood waters at the ford.
A number of team members were deployed including ten Swift Water Rescue Technicians who are trained and equipped to deal with water and flood rescues.
Upon arrival team members checked that there was no-one in the car using long reach poles from the nearby footbridge.
Once it was determined that the car was empty teams of five carried out a bank side search immediately downstream of the car.
After a few hours with nothing found and in liaison with the Police our search parties stood-down for the night pending further enquiries by the Police.
