The volunteer crews from the Redcar lifeboat were called into action yesterday evening.
Both lifeboats were launched from the Redcar RNLI lifeboat station just before 5.30 last night after reports that a person had entered the sea at Redcar.
A thorough search of the area was carried out, with assistance from the Redcar Coastguard.
However the search was called off after around an hour and a half after nothing was found.
Callous thieves have stolen a poppy tin from a pub in Normanby.
A conservatory window at The Stapylton Arms in Eston was broken at around 2.30 in the morning on Sunday, and a tin raising cash for the Poppy Appeal was stolen.
CCTV footage from the pub shows a man climbing through the window and removing the collection tin from the bar.
Eric Howden, is the local chairman of the Royal British Legion.
Children from Grangetown Primary School have come together to raise awareness of the dangers of second-hand smoke.
Hitting shops and businesses in Grangetown, the Year 6 pupils made handmade signs for shops to display, requesting people not to smoke directly outside the premises.
The aim is to stop children being exposed to smoke when entering the shops.
This is all part of the Smokefree Communities Project, a council scheme which is being developed in three wards within the borough – Grangetown, Loftus and Kirkleatham.
The aim of the Grangetown project is to help improve the health and wellbeing of local communities by reducing the number of people who smoke, and the number of people who are exposed to second-hand smoke.
