The volunteer crews of the Redcar RNLI lifeboat were scrambled into action yesterday.

The crew was called into action at 2.30pm after a lookout in the Coastwatch station on the sea front at Redcar saw a pair of legs and feet in the surf to the east of the lifeboat station.

The lookout called UK Coastguard who in turn paged the lifeboat crew.

The lifeboat was on scene within 4 minutes of launching and its crew began searching the surf for the reported person.

At the same time crew members on the shore began scouring the beach in the search area and came across a pair of fisherman's waders, complete with built-in boots close to the surf line.

These are believed to have been the cause of the sighting.

The lifeboat crews returned to base a short time later.

 

Redcar & Cleveland and Middlesbrough have been chosen by Sport England as a pilot area to work with on a bold new approach to build healthier, more active communities across England.

Around £100million of National Lottery funding will be invested in 12 pilot schemes over four years, to create innovative partnerships that make it easier for people in these communities to access sport and physical activity.

Latest research shows that a quarter of the general population - that's around 11.5 million people - are inactive, meaning they do less than 30 minutes of exercise that gets them slightly out of breath each week, with certain groups such as those in lower paid jobs, women and the disabled disproportionately affected.

Redcar & Cleveland and Middlesbrough share a joint Public Health department, and will deliver the pilot to communities in the South Tees area.

 

Cleveland Police's Crime Prevention Team will be launching their 'Jingle Bells' campaign with a 'pop up shop' in Redcar today.

The team will be at Tesco on West Dyke Road in Redcar today between 11am and 1pm handing out purse bells and providing crime prevention advice to ensure that people are extra safe throughout the festive season.

Purse bells are designed to be attached to your purse to deter thieves.

Leaflets featuring safety tips and advice on how to stay safe this Christmas when at home, shopping or partying will also be issued.
