The number of confirmed coronavirus cases on Teesside has fallen, according to latest figures.
A total of 109 new covid-19 cases have been recorded in our area in the past 24 hours, figures from Public Health England have shown.
Once again, Stockton recorded the most amount of cases, with 34.
In Middlesbrough there were a further 29, whilst here in Redcar and Cleveland there have been a further 24.
Redcar has shown "significant interest" in mass coronavirus testing as the town aims to lower its tier.
The announcement was made by Health Secretary, Matt Hancock during a Downing Street press conference that gave an insight into the Government's community testing aims.
Mr Hancock said community testing would be expanded across tier 3 areas to create a "faster way out of the toughest restrictions".
And after approaching local authorities, he said the Government had received "significant interest" from Redcar, as well as some other parts of the country.
Redcar and Cleveland Council was previously one of several councils which put itself forward for mass testing - which sees the Army drafted in to aid with logistics and the setting up of test centres - before the start of a national lockdown earlier this month.
A silver BMW was seized by Redcar Neighbourhood Officers on Saturday 28th November.
The vehicle had previously been reportedly sighted by officers driving dangerously and was later recovered in the Dormanstown area.
Enquiries are ongoing in a bid to trace the driver.
