A further 318 more people have contracted coronavirus on Teesside, taking the total number of confirmed cases past 35,000.

Public Health England figures show that Stockton had recorded the highest increase in cases on Monday, with a further 106 cases.

In Middlesbrough there were 102 new cases, whilst here in Redcar and Cleveland there were a further 75.

 

Police are appealing for information after a series of commercial burglaries around Metcalfe Road on Teesside Industrial Estate in South Bank.

The most recent burglary, which is the fifth reported in the area in recent weeks, occurred in the early hours of Saturday at the Macro Based Diner.

Other burglaries have also been reported at Vapour Depot, CCG Cable Termination and two at James Paul Services.

Cash has been stolen from the properties, and a laptop.

Officers are linking these incidents and would ask anyone with information to contact Detective Constable Lindsay Forbes from Redcar & Cleveland CID on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

The volunteers of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were called into action yesterday after a car was washed into floodwaters.

The team were contacted yesterday afternoon by North Yorkshire Police to provide safety cover while a car which had been washed off the ford near Glaisdale was secured.

The Environment Agency were concerned that the predicted heavy rain would wash the car further downstream potentially damaging other areas.

After discussions with Police on scene it was agreed that the car would be secured to a nearby tree as the high water level meant that it was not possible to pull the car out of the river.

The vehicle will be recovered once the water levels drop.
