The RNLI lifeboats from Redcar were called into action yesterday after a child was reported missing on the beach.
The call came at 2.30pm after the parents of a 10-year-old boy raised the alarm. The lifeboats launched and began a search of the shoreline to the west of the lifeboat station.
At 2.50pm police officers on the beach located the boy, safe and well and he was reunited with his parents.
With the beaches being particularly popular at the moment the charity is continuing to urge anyone planning to visit the coast to make sure they keep themselves and their families safe by following beach safety advice.
In an emergency you should dial 999, and ask for the Coastguard.
The volunteers from the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team have been called into action in our area.
