Police are scaling back resources in the Redcar rape investigation.
However, they say they're still looking into the incident almost one month on.
The investigation was launched after a mum claimed she was taken from seafront with her toddler and raped by two men.
A 31-year-old man was arrested in the days after but was released without charge.
And shortly after, police said the incident “was not as first reported”.
Cleveland Police are asking anyone with relevant private CCTV or dashcam footage from the area to get in touch.
Two lifeboats set out early yesterday morning after reports of a man walking into the sea at Redcar.
But the incident is now thought to have been a false alarm.
The RNLI launched the boats after a request for help from the North East Ambulance Service.
They had received a call saying a man in dark clothes was walking into the sea near the slipway opposite Graffenberg Street.
They searched the area for about 45 minutes before standing down emergency services.
East Cleveland is getting its very own cycling race that takes place tomorrow.
The East Cleveland Klondike Grand Prix will see 140 elite cyclists from across the country getting in the saddle.
The race will start and finish in Guisborough and will take riders through Saltburn, Easington, Loftus and Brotton.
Residents are being encouraged to decorate their houses in yellow and green to show their support.
The race begins at 12pm and is expected to end around 3pm.
