The latest government figures show that there have been 184 new cases of coronavirus recorded across the region in the past 24 hours.

That's higher than Wednesday's figure of 146 but is a significant drop on the 262 cases that were recorded last Thursday.

The highest number of new cases were reported in Middlesbrough where there were 57 new cases, with Stockton closely behind with 56.

Here in Redcar and Cleveland there were a further 51.

 

A man who stabbed his victim in the neck before setting his body alight has been jailed for almost 20 years.

At Teesside Crown Court yesterday 39-year-old Anthony Hart was found guilty of murdering 62-year-old Francis Betteridge, known as Frank, on December 27th 2019.

The victim's burning body was found by a relative inside the semi-detached bungalow on Stephens Road in South Bank.

Mr Hart, of Hartington Road in Stockton, had accepted causing manslaughter but denied murder.

However yesterday a jury found him guilty of murder for which he was given a life sentence.

 

Police are appealing for information after a Ford Escort key fob and a Ryobi drill was stolen from the garage of a property in Redcar.

The incident occurred at a house on Windsor Road on Tuesday at around 11:30pm.

The car key fob is of sentimental value to the owner.

Anyone who may have come across the stolen items is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
