NEWS ROUNDUP: Election results are in & alcohol deaths hit all time high

 

Local election results are in and alcohol deaths are at an all time high.

Over 200 new cases of coronavirus were reported across the North East and North Yorkshire on Sunday.  The highest number of cases was reported in Newcastle with 45, with the fewest reported in Redcar & Cleveland with 4.

Alcohol deaths
Alcohol related deaths in England hit record highs in 2020, with the North East being the worst affected area. Fatalities from alcohol related illness rose 20.5% in the region. The North East England alcohol office, Balance, is calling for urgent action from the government, saying it's time to stop listening to alcohol companies when it comes to alcohol policy in this country.
Local elections

The local election results continued to come in over the weekend. Ben Houchen was re-elected as Tees Valley Mayor and Norma Redfearn held on to her position as Mayor for North Tyneside. The Conservatives continued their success in Hartlepool securing more seats than any other party in the Council.
