The latest figures show that the highest coronavirus infection rates in the country are all on Teesside, but cases are beginning to fall.

It's the first time the four borough's have seen a drop in cases week-on-week in months.

Infection rates had been soaring in recent weeks, but the latest data from Public Health England have shown a more positive picture.

The figures, which are from the week ending July 22, are unlikely to take into account the effect of 'freedom day.', when all restrictions were lifted on July 19, and it is predicted that rates are likely to go back up in the coming weeks.

Redcar & Cleveland continues to have the highest rate of coronavirus infections in the country with 1,547 new cases in the seven days to July 22.

Middlesbrough has the second highest rate, with 1,474 new cases.

 

Cleveland Police are asking residents of Eston to be vigilant after the Force received 5 reports of walk-in burglaries or attempted burglaries since Saturday.

Property that was stolen included a Ford van and its keys along with a Ford Kuga and mobile phones.

A walk-in burglary is one where the burglar gets into a property through an insecure door or window, and there is often a spike as the weather improves.

If you have any information about a crime, you can contact the police on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

The volunteers of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team have been called into action in our area.

The team were contacted yesterday afternoonfollowing reports of a man who had collapsed near Tripsdale, east of Chop Gate on the North York Moors.

Two double-crewed Team Land Rovers were deployed and a number of other Team members were also sent to the area via a local RV-point.

However, before arriving at the scene the team were advised that the casualty had been loaded into the air ambulance and was en route to hospital, so the volunteer members were able to stand-down.
