The latest Public Health England figures, released yesterday, show that there have been a further 170 new positive coronavirus cases on Teesside.

While numbers are often less after the weekend, the number of cases has almost halved from this time last weeek, when 318 new cases were recorded.

The biggest rise was in Middlesbrough, with 69 new cases recorded.

In Stockton there were a further 44 cases, whilst here in Redcar and Cleveland there were 34 new cases.

 

The leader of Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council has said she is in discussions to ensure that everybody in our borough has easy access to a Covid-19 vaccine.

Concerns have been raised by residents in some areas of East Cleveland that the closest vaccination centre is in Guisborough.

Councillor Mary Lanigan said yesterday that it is unrealistic for elderly and vulnerable people in our outlying towns and villages to make the journey from their homes to Guisborough in the worst of the winter weather.

She said that health service colleagues are doing everything possible to rectify this situation and set up another centre closer to our residents who live on the outskirts of our borough. 

She added that residents who have yet to be contacted will be called for their vaccination soon, and the best thing people can do is to wait for this, rather than contacting their GP practice.

 

The coastguard has warned the public to stay away from cliffs in our area after further reports of coastal erosion.

Very wet weather in the past few weeks had already caused land beneath new steps at Port Mulgrave, between Staithes and Runswick Bay, to wash away over the weekend.

Staithes Coastguard Rescue Team say that there has been a significant landslip close to Runswick Bay, with in excess of 200 tonnes of debris from the cliffs falling onto the beach.

There is a risk that there may be further cliff falls including rock and mud, and also the potential of people being cut off by the tide beyond the land slip and very wet mud which would be impossible to walk through.

The coastguard is warning the public to keep away from cliff edges and the base of cliffs due to continued erosion.
