The volunteers of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were in action at Roseberry Topping at the weekend.
Cleveland police contacted the team with reports that a 78 yr old gentleman was having difficulty descending from Roseberry Topping.
Members of the public had raised the alarm and had assisted the man part way down the hill.
Team members in the Land Rover Ambulance met the group at the top of Roseberry Lane.
They then took the man to their nearby base where he was assessed by the team doctor.
He was given some fluids, something to eat, and after a rest was taken back to his car where he was able to make his own way home.
Posting on their Facebook page the team are reminding the public that particularly in warm weather you should always take plenty of water and some snacks with you, and ensure that you keep well hydrated when enjoying a day out on the hills and moors in our area.
A major mining project that will bring thousands of jobs to our area is being outlined at a new exhibition at Kirkleatham Museum.
Sirius Minerals’ multi-million pound project involves the construction of two deep mineshafts south of Whitby to access a deposit of a mineral called polyhalite, a key ingredient in fertiliser.
The mine shafts connect to a 23-mile tunnel to transport the mineral via conveyor belt to Teesside, where it will be processed and shipped around the world.
Construction of the mine began last year and is due to enter production in 2021, creating up to 2,500 jobs.
The exhibition, entitled ‘From Woodsmith to the World: The Story of Sirius Minerals’ Polyhalite Project’, opened on Saturday at Kirkleatham Museum and will explore the design, construction and operation of the new mine and processing plant.
The exhibition will close on Wednesday 11 July.
