NEWS ROUNDUP: Mayor’s vaccine concerns and Middlesbrough rat problem

 

Middlesbrough Mayor Andy Preston has expressed his frustration at the redirection of coronavirus vaccines to areas down south.

NHS England have said that this isn't happening, as has Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland MP Simon Clarke. However, Mr Preston believes that the figures show that the region has now fallen behind with the vaccination rollout.

Calls have been made for the government to effectively address the covid imposed cancer backlog. Grahame Morris, MP for Easington, is one of 75 parliamentarians who have signed a letter calling for an overhaul of the cancer recovery plan to ensure that people aren't waiting too long for treatment.
 
Rat problems in Middlesbrough need to be addressed with a free pest control service for private homes, that's according to the council’s environmental panel. They want to see the service reinstated as pest problems spread throughout the community. The request is being considered.
