A woman has been airlifted to hospital after being pulled from the sea at Saltburn at the weekend.
Emergency services were called to Saltburn Pier following the incident just before 2pm yesterday afternoon.
The woman was pulled out of the sea by the beach life guards and was then transferred to James Cook University Hospital by air ambulance.
The Staithes and Redcar Coastguard Rescue Teams were also tasked to the scene.
The current condition of the woman is unknown.
Police are appealing for witnesses to a serious collision on the A171.
At around 4pm on Friday a black Audi A4, which was travelling towards Whitby and a red Ford Fiesta, travelling toward Scarborough, collided near to the turning for Robin Hood's Bay.
Two adults and two children travelling in the Fiesta were transported to hospital by land ambulance and a third child was airlifted to James Cook University Hospital by Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
The occupants of the Audi were uninjured.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 101.
Members of the public using beaches in our area have been urged to avoid jelly fish and seals on the shore.
Large numbers of jelly fish could be seen on the beach at Redcar over the weekend, and their sting can be painful.
People have also been warned to avoid going near any seals which may come onto the beach.
At this time of year a few of them come to the shore for a rest, and can bite if approached.
If left alone the seals will normally return to the sea when they are ready.
