MP for Redcar, Jacob Young has confirmed he is self-isolating.

In a Facebook post, he said: "Yesterday, I got an email from NHS Test and Trace saying I have to self isolate until next Wednesday (25th) as I am a contact of someone who has tested positive.

"I will continue to work for my constituents during my isolation. But rather than asking questions from the Green Benches, I’ll be doing it from my kitchen.

"It’s important we all continue to follow the guidance to reduce the spread - get a test if we have symptoms and self isolate if we’re told to."
