The volunteer crews of the Redcar RNLI lifeboats were called into action yesterday.
Just after 1.30 yesterday afternoon, both lifeboats were launched after reports of a person in the sea at Redcar.
The crews began a search of the area however the lifeboats were stood down a short time later and returned to the lifeboat station.
The incident has been classed as a false alarm with good intent.
Gender equality across our area is being given a boost through a national campaign backed by Cleveland Police.
The Force joined all UK police forces at New Scotland Yard in London earlier this week to show its commitment towards gender equality for the global HeForShe initiative.
HeForShe is a campaign initiated by United Nations women and is a solidarity movement aimed at people around the world to stand together to create a bold, visible force for a gender equal world.
The discussion included how to improve the gender imbalances at senior levels within policing and in doing so become more representative of our communities in order that issues of violence against women and girls can be better addressed.
This bank holiday weekend sees the return of Redcar’s amazing sand sculptures for the fourth year running.
This year's theme is commemorating the end of the First World War and the sand sculptures will be crafted around Redcar’s connections to the war.
The sand artists also hope to create a special cenotaph out of sand to stand as a centrepiece for a parade which will be lead by the Royal British Legion on Bank Holiday Monday.
The sand sculptures are part of the Kick off the Summer event which is taking place across the Bank Holiday, and is organised by local community group Friends Of Redcar with support from Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council.
