DAILY HEADLINES : Covid infection rate and family’s driving plea

 

The coronavirus infection rate in the North East is not falling as rapidly as other areas in England. The overall infection rate in England has dropped by around two thirds, but only dropped by one third in our region.

A family whose loved one died when he was hit by a driver using a mobile phone has urged others to think twice about using them behind the wheel.
