A further 191 coronavirus cases have been confirmed on Teesside in the past 24 hours.

Updated Public Health figures released yesterday showed that Middlesbrough recorded the highest number of new cases with 64, whilst in Stockton there were a further 61.

Here in Redcar and Cleveland there were a further 40 confirmed cases.

 

A police investigation has begun after the body of a man was found near to a roundabout in our area.

Police and emergency services attended the scene close to a grassed area on the Trunk Road in Eston after concerns were raised for the well-being of a man yesterday morning.

Crime scene officers were also at the site carrying out their own investigations into the death.

Sadly, a man was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after the arrival of emergency services at around 11.30am.

An investigation is now under way to determine the man's identity and the circumstances surrounding his death.

 

Two men will appear in court later today charged with fraud by false representation after a vulnerable elderly person was targeted by bogus traders last week.

Zetland FM's Stuart Clarkson reports;

"Inquiries are ongoing after a man called unannounced at a house telling the resident, who is in their 80s, that they needed some external property repairs.

The householder physically went to the bank to withdraw a large amount of cash.

They were later asked to withdraw even more money for the “work” which has not taken place

Now, officers are asking the puvlib to speak to any older or vulnerable family members or friends and remind them always use reputable or personally recommended companies for any property or garden work – and agree a price for any repairs or maintenance before it begins.

Suspicious cold callers can be reported via the 101 number, or using 999 in an emergency."
