Two teenagers had to be rescued by the Redcar lifeboats yesterday after they were trapped on rocks by the incoming tide.

The teenagers, both 19-years-old and from the Middlesbrough area were taken aboard the lifeboat and landed at the lifeboat station.
They were unharmed during the incident and left the scene after being given sea safety advice.

The chance to be part of a pop-up choir at this year’s Festival of Thrift is being offered to enthusiastic singers of all ages.
This year’s Festival at Kirkleatham in Redcar on 17 and 18 September is to feature a choir of 170 to celebrate 170 years of steel-making on Teesside.
Led by north-east artists the acapella ensemble 'Mouthful', the choir will present a performance on each day of the Festival and a band of invisible singers will also pop up at various venues across the site throughout the weekend.
They aim to create a Festival choir that brings together people of all ages.
Taking the themes of forging, smelting and tempering as the starting point they will make new songs, re-imagine old songs and perform together.
The process is open to all and no experience is required, only enthusiasm.
