A boat belonging to Redcar Sea Cadets has been stolen.
It was taken on Saturday night from a lock up in Majuba car park.
The boat was seen being towed away on a trailer led by a red quad bike.
Police think there were people around at the time and are asking for them to get in touch with any information.
Speeding drivers are being targeted by police.
They'll be working in marked and unmarked cars to find the motorists.
Over the last year more than twenty thousand people were caught speeding in Cleveland and Durham.
The offence currently has a 100 found fine and three penalty points attached to it.
A brother and sister have been rescued after they were trapped by the rising tide.
It happened yesterday at the base of Huntcliff and the alarm was raised.
A member of Redcar's lifeboat service waded out and guided them to a waiting lifeboat.
Once on board they were taken back to shore and put in the Coastguard’s care.
And arrangements for this year's Festival of Thrift at Kirkleatham Museum are now well underway.

It's set to take place on the 23rd and 24th of September at Kirkleatham Museum.
