Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council is urging everyone in the borough to take steps to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
Following national guidelines on social distancing and avoiding unnecessary contact, the council has announced a range of measures designed to help people stay safe and reduce the pressure on the NHS.
Council staff will work from home where appropriate, public meetings of councillors have been cancelled, and public buildings and attractions will close.
These closures include all universal and group activities at Family Hubs across the borough will cease from tomorrow, Youth Centres across the borough will no longer be offering evening youth club sessions, and all public facing council activities at TunedIn! and Inspire to Learn will cease;
The Saltburn Cliff Lift, Kirkleatham Museum and The Flatts Lane and Guisborough Forest Walkway centres have also been closed, although the parks themselves will remain open.
All council organised events will be cancelled until the end of April.
A body has been found while 999 crews were searching for a missing person at Runswick Bay.
Emergency services, including the police, ambulance and coastguard, were contacted yesterday at around 1.30am to assist in a search.
A person was recovered from the sea but tragically passed away at the scene.
Police are appealing to the public to be aware of a number of recent distraction burglaries in our area.
The force has received a number of reports over the last couple of days, including an incident on Bevanlee Road in South Bank where two men distracted an elderly householder whilst one man entered the house and took a large amount of cash.
In another incidenta woman in her 40s, calling herself Emma, knocked at a door in Kirkleatham after 11pm, asking the occupant for money. Sensibly the householder did not open the door and the woman left. Police advice is to be vigilant and to look out for elderly relatives and neighbours.
