The coastguard and emergency teams attended following a large rock fall at Huntcliff in Saltburn yesterday.
At around 11:20 yesterday morning Redcar Coastguard Rescue team were tasked by the Humber operations room at Bridlington to reports of a large cliff fall at Huntcliff in Salburn.
The RNLI Lifeguards Yorkshire were also called to the scene.
Luckily, nobody was underneath the cliff at the time and there were no injuries.
Coastguard advice is to stay clear of the cliff edge whether you are on top or on the bottom of the cliff, the cliffs along the coastline are extremely unstable.
You should also check tide times when going out for a walk along the coastline.
If you see anyone in trouble on the beach or cliffs dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
Police are appealing for information after an elderly gentleman needed surgery after being struck by a pedal bike at the weekend.
At around 9:30am on Saturday the 79-year-old man was walking on Captain Cook’s Crescent in Marton, when he was struck and knocked to the ground by a cycle being ridden on the same pavement.
The gentleman was taken by ambulance to James Cook University Hospital where he had an operation to his dislocated and fractured shoulder and received treatment for cuts and bruises to his right hand.
Police believe that there were a lot of people in the area at the time and they may be able to help with information on the manner the cycle was being ridden and on the collision itself.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Cleveland Police via the non-emergency 101 number.
