Emergency services from our area were in action over the weekend after the discovery of a man's body at South Gare.
The RNLI lifeboats from Redcar were launched on Friday to assist other emergency services in the search for a man believed to have gone missing in the South Gare area of Redcar.
The lifeboats launched just before 1.30pm on Friday and searched between the North Gare and Marske and along a stretch of the River Tees.
While the lifeboats were searching, police and coastguard officers ashore discovered the body of a man close to the shoreline at South Gare.
Crew members from the lifeboats assisted police and coastguard officers in transferring the man into the Redcar inshore lifeboat, which then transported him to a nearby slipway and placed him into the care of police officers.
A Teesside college is celebrating success as its apprenticeship team is honoured at a national awards ceremony.
For the second consecutive year Redcar & Cleveland College’s apprenticeship team were named as finalists in the 2017 Apprenticeships4England awards.
The team travelled to London earlier this week for the prestigious ceremony, taking place during national apprenticeship week, and were presented with the silver award in the best college category.
To qualify the team had to provide evidence on how they had continued to show outstanding achievement, best practice and excellence in apprenticeship delivery across 2016.
Inspirational Women from Redcar and Cleveland were recognised at a prestigious awards ceremony on Friday.
The second 'Inspiring Women' awards were held in memory of former Redcar MP Mo Mowlem at the Bellamy Pavilion at Kirkleatham Museum, and were hosted by Zetland FM presenter Julie Donaldson.
The 'Mo Mowlam Overall Winner' award was presented to Linda Dickinson, who was recognised for her work with youngsters with special needs. Linda was nominated for the award by her daughter Helen Humphreys.
Redcar MP Anna Turley presented a number of the awards at the event.
