Two further coronavirus related deaths have been recorded on Teesside as infection rates remain among the highest in the UK.

Redcar and Cleveland's infection rate remains the highest in the whole country, with 1,530.4 per 100,000 resident population, according to figures from Public Health England which were published yesterday afternoon.

Meanwhile Middlesbrough, Stockton and Hartlepool remain in the top five areas of the country with the highest recorded infection rates.

The total number of deaths recorded at Teesside hospitals now stands at 1,141, made up of 615 at South Tees and 526 at North Tees.

The most recent death in Redcar and Cleveland was on June 24.

 

The volunteer crew of the Redcar RNLI lifeboats were called into action in our area twice yesterday.

Just before 3pm yesterday both lifeboats were launched to search for surfers reported to be in difficulties.

However nothing was found after a search of the area.

Then just before 4.45pm the Atlantic 85 lifeboat was launched following reports of a person in the sea at Saltburn. 

The person was rescued by RNLI lifeguards and lifeboat returned to the station.

 

Signs reminding motorists to switch off their engines while waiting at Redcar Railway Crossing have been installed on West Dyke Road and Redcar Lane in Redcar.

It is hoped that the new signage will reduce air pollution in the area especially as leaving a vehicle engine idling can produce up to twice as many exhaust emissions as an engine in motion.

These emissions contain many polluting gases such as carbon monoxide, hydrogen dioxide and carbon dioxide which are not only harmful for the environment, contributing to climate change, but they are also linked with lung diseases.

The signs are intended to encourage motorists to contribute towards the ambition of a carbon neutral borough by 2030.
