An inquest into the deaths of two teenage boys has ruled that they slipped off a cliff after taking a selfie.
Friends Alex Yeoman and Harry Watson were found at the bottom of Huntcliff on the 24th of March.
Just moments earlier they had sent a Snapchat message of them smiling.
Separate inquests were held yesterday to determine how they died.
Both heard evidence of happy young men with no physical or mental health issues and their deaths were recorded as accidental.
There are no trains between Redcar and Saltburn until Wednesday due to engineering work.
The vital work will upgrade the switches and crossings that allow trains to move from one track to another.
This means there will be no trains but a bus replacement service has been organised.
Passengers are asked to check the national rail website and to make use of alternative transport.
A piece of land at Saltburn is being pitched for a new holiday park.
The land next to Saltburn Lane is currently being marketed.
It's being described as an ideal spot for camping, caravans, pods or holiday lodges.
But so far residents’ opinions are mixed, with many thinking it'd be good for business but could cause traffic problems.
Tomorrow's Redcar triathlon is set to be the biggest yet.
More than 500 athletes have signed up to Sunday's event.
And this year it's one of the qualifying events for the World Sprint Triathlon Championships later this year.
Competitors will tackle a 750 metre swim, 20 kilometre cycle and a 5 kilometre run around Redcar seafront.
