A vehicle had to be rescued from the sea after getting caught by the incoming tide at Saltburn beach at the weekend.

The black 4 x 4 vehicle was trying to retrieve a small motor launch from the sea as the tide was turning at around a quarter past midday on Saturday.

As the vehicle tried to pull the trailer out of the water, it sunk deeper into the wet sand on the beach.

Two other vehicles attempted to pull it out, but had to turn back before they too became stuck.

However the 4x4 was eventually pulled from the rising water to a round of applause from onlookers on the beach.

 

The volunteers from the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were called into action at the weekend.

On Saturday evening at around twenty past seven the team were alerted by North Yorkshire Police who had been contacted by two women walkers who had got lost on the Cleveland Way.

The ladies had become disoriented in the thick low cloud that was obscuring visibility and sought help.

The team were able to contact them by phone and send a message to their phone which gave us their coordinates and location close to the Wainstones.

Team members walked to their location and escorted them back to the still misty Clay Bank car park. They were fortunately unharmed by the experience though a little damp in the conditions.

6 team members were involved for around 2hrs 10mins.

 

Cleveland Police are on the lookout for members of the public who would like to become 'special constables'.

The force has committed to recruit more ordinary people willing to make an extraordinary difference to their community.

As part of National Volunteers’ Week, the force wants to swell the numbers of those volunteering as special constables to more than 200 in the coming months, and will be keeping recruitment open to for roles at all times.

Recruitment will open on Wednesday and you can apply at cleveland.police.uk
