Redcar Coastguard were called into action a number of times at the weekend.
Just after 9am yesterday they responded to reports of a pile of female clothing which had been left on the beach at Redcar near to the Lifeboat slipway.
A search between Redcar and Marske was conducted with coastguard teams from Staithes and Skinningrove working alongside RNLI lifeboats, however nothing was found. The search was eventually called off and the incident was classed as false alarm with good intent.
Other callouts included a car stuck on the beach at Marske, reports of a missing man in the Saltburn area and attending to an unwell Redcar Triathlon competitor who had been recovered to shore by the RNLI.
Thousands of people flocked to Saltburn yesterday to enjoy the delights of the Food Festival.
With over 100 stalls, there was food, drink, cookery demonstrations by culinary tv stars, arts and crafts on offer and despite the odd heavy shower, those attending appeared to have enjoyed the day.
Even the lack of trains to the town didn't put people off, as replacement buses were laid on and very busy.
Meanwhile, in Redcar, there were big crowds cheering on over 500 competitors from across the UK, taking part in the annual
Sprint Triathlon which was a World Championship qualifier meaning some of Britain’s best triathletes were drawn to Redcar
to book their place in September’s championships, which are being held in Rotterdam.
And if you head to the Zetland FM Facebook page, we've posted a link to the full results list or head online to the Tri Hard Events website.
Staying with the sporting connection, two Redcar youngsters have braved a one mile obstacle course in North Yorkshire, to raise money for charity.
Caitlin and AJ Clark travelled to Skipton along with their parents Sarah and Russ, who run the Cleveland Bay pub on Borough Rd, and did the Mini Mudder to raise money for a charity that's been adopted by the pub.
Dad Russ also took part, doing the Tough Mudder.
