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.
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.
