Volunteers from the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were called into action yesterday to rescue a family pet.
The team were contacted by North Yorkshire Police after a dog owner reported that his dog had fallen 10-15 feet down a sink hole.
A Fire Service specialist animal recovery team had also been called.
Just as the team arrived the fire team successfully recovered the dog after lowering a loop of rope from the edge of the hole.
The hole in the woods near Newgate Bank north at Helmsley has been reported to the North Yorkshire Moors National Park Authority to ensure it is now fenced off.
Hundreds of people braved the weather to take part in the Redcar Sprint Triathlon yesterday.
The event saw hundreds of competitors battle it out over a 750m swim, 20km cycle and a 5km run.
The winner of the ladies race was former Olympian Michelle Dillon in a time of 1 hour 9 minutes and 53 seconds.
The winner of the Men's under 45 race was Benjamin Goodall, who led from the beginning of his race, and finished in a time of 1 hour 1 minutes and 21 seconds.
Three days of music and partying drew the crowds to Guisborough Priory over the weekend.
The Summer Sound and Proms in the Priory events saw several thousand people descend on the Priory to enjoy tribute acts on Friday and Saturday, and a selection of popular classical music on Sunday.
Crowds at the event on Friday saw the weather change from bright sunshine to a huge thunderstorm, however this didn't dampen the spirits as revellers danced to tributes to George Michael, ABBA, and Michael Jackson.
Last night's Proms in the Priory event also drew a large crowd, who as part of the evening were treated to a debut performance from Guisborough's own teenage soprano Charlotte Potter.
Charlotte told Zetland FM how she was feeling before the event.
