Middlesbrough Council is the local authority of Middlesbrough. While it is associated for ceremonial and historic purposes with North Yorkshire it is in the region of North East England. Close to Redcar and Cleveland the borough extends southward to a semi-rural area. Middlesbrough itself is a large town situated on the south bank of the river Tees and, surprisingly, has more of a continental climate than other parts of the UK, being in a relatively drier part of the country with above average summer temperatures and below average winter temperatures. The port of Teesport is vital to the economy of Middlesbrough and is currently the third largest port in the UK and amongst the tenth biggest in Western Europe, handling over 56 million tonnes of domestic and international cargo per year.
