A further 216 new coronavirus cases have been confirmed on Teesside.

The latest Public Health England figures show that Middlesbrough saw the highest increase with 81 new cases, whilst Stockton had 64.

Here in Redcar and Cleveland there were 44 new confirmed cases.

 

The volunteers of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were called into action yesterday to provide assistance to a District Nurse whose vehicle was unable to get through snow whilst she was carrying out a home visit.

The nurse was stranded at Glaisdale Rigg on the North York Moors.

Four of the volunteer Team members were deployed in two Team Land Rovers. 

Upon reaching the nurse the Land Rover crews were able to help get her car back underway and then escorted her down to Lealholm (pron "Leel-home") and onto the moor road, allowing her to continue her journey.

 

Police have warned the public to be vigilant after a fraudster impersonated a police officer and targeted a victim in Middlesbrough over the phone.

It comes after two reports of a similar nature were reported to the Force last month.

A fraudster contacted the victim over the phone and claimed to be a police officer from Middlesbrough.

They told the victim that her bank account had been jeopardised and she was advised to transfer her money to a police bank account.

The victim did this and transferred £2,000. 

Cleveland Police would like to make it clear that officers or banks would never ask you to withdraw or transfer cash or give money to a courier to pick up.

If you receive an unexpected call where someone asks for your bank details or for you to withdraw cash, put the phone down and report the incident to police.
