The latest figures show that less than 100 new coronavirus cases have been confirmed on Teesside in the past 24 hours.
Data released yesterday by Public Health England shows that there have been another 97 cases on Teesside.
That compares to 157 cases recorded last Tuesday.
Stockton recorded the highest number of cases with 30 people new confirmed cases, whilst in Middlesbrough there were a further 26.
Here in Redcar and Cleveland there were a further 14 cases.
A busy main road in our area had to be closed yesterday and overnight after a lorry broke down.
The vehicle broke down on the A174 at Loftus Bank, between Carlin How and Loftus, late yesterday morning.
Cleveland Police closed the road for safety reasons following the incident, and it remained closed overnight with diversions in operation.
Work is expected to continue this morning to recover the vehicle and re-open the route.
The volunteers of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were called into action in our area yesterday evening.
At around 6pm the team were contacted about two women who had walked up towards the summit of Roseberry Topping but felt unsafe descending in the high winds that were prevalent throughout the day yesterday.
The women were contacted by phone in order to reassure them and to confirm their location which was below the summit.
Team members soon located one of the the women near to the shooting lodge on the land below Roseberry Topping.
A few minutes later we located the other woman and they were both walked down to Newton car-park to continue their journey, safe and well.
