Crews from the Redcar RNLI were called into operation at the weekend.
The Redcar lifeboat was called to the assistance of a 26-foot fishing boat yesterday after it suffered engine failure three miles north east of Redcar.
The Atlantic 85 lifeboat launched at 2.15pm and located the stricken craft soon afterwards.
The fishing boat, which had one person on board, was towed to safety at the South Gare in the River Tees.
Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were in action at the weekend to assist a mountain biker who had crashed on the North Yorkshire Moors.
At around 10.30 on Saturday morning, the team responded to reports that a male cyclist had been injured around two miles from the Lion Inn at Blakey Ridge, between Castleton and Hutton Le Hole.
The injured man, who was from Hartlepool, had been cycling with a group of friends when he lost control of his bike and ended up going over his handlebars.
The team from Cleveland Mountain Rescue deployed in two Land Rover ambulances and headed towards the accident site which was in the middle of Farndale Moor but was reachable by the team's 4x4 vehicles.
The Yorkshire Air Ambulance also attended the scene and its crew treated the injured man before loading him into the helicopter and taking him to James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough.
Tesco have confirmed that a skimming device was not fitted to a cash machine at its store in Normanby.
The machine at Tesco Express, on High Street, was taken offline on Thursday afternoon whilst engineers investigated.
Officers from Cleveland Police were called at around ten past two after reports that a skimming device had been found attached to the machine.
Tesco has now confirmed that their engineer has fully inspected the machine and confirmed that there was no evidence of a skimming device.
Police have advised that members of the public who are concerned about suspicious transactions on their account should contact their issuing bank in the first instance.
