The leader of Redcar and Cleveland Council has said the borough is experiencing an “extraordinary” rise in new covid-19 cases.

Addressing a full council meeting, Councillor Mary Lanigan described seeing maps which were showing “bright red” across the area.

She also suggested the programme to deliver booster vaccines to vulnerable groups was not as extensive as it should be and it was a “bit of a worry” that a lot of people in these categories were still waiting to be jabbed.

Coronavirus tracking data, based on information provided by Public Health England and the Office for National Statistics, show that there were 101 new cases reported in Redcar and Cleveland on Wednesday.

A total of 716 cases were diagnosed in the last seven days, equating to an infection rate of 522.1 per 100,000 population.

 

A woman has been arrested and suspected Class B drugs following a police operation in Eston.

On Wednesday officers from the Eston Neighbourhood Policing team carried out a joint operation with the North East Regional Special Operations Unit and the National Crime Agency to recover suspected drugs.

The drugs warrant was carried out at a property on South Terrace, in South Bank, where officers recovered a quantity of suspected Class B drugs.

One woman aged 41 was arrested and has been released under investigation.

Enquiries are ongoing.

 

Police recovered a suspected stolen vehicle and arrested two people within twenty minutes of the report of the incident. 

A report was made just after twenty to eight yesterday morning of a Vauxhall Corsa stolen from Westminster Close in Eston. 

Roads policing officers responded and located the vehicle parked on Aviemore Road in Hemlington at 8am. 

A 27-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman were arrested in connection with the incident and enquiries are ongoing.
