Police thanked four members of the public after two young girls fell into the sea at the weekend.
Police were called to Redcar beach, near to the caravan site just after 4pm on Saturday after the two girls, aged 10 and 11 ended up in the water.
One of the girls had fallen into the water from a ramp and the other tried to help her but also slipped into the sea.
The four members of the public risked their own lives to rescue the girls, and neighbourhood officers who attended the scene said afterwards that their brave and prompt action meant nobody was seriously hurt:
The girls suffered bruising and were very cold from being in the water but they were checked over by ambulance service colleagues before being left in the care of their parents.
A busy main road in our area had to be closed following a crash yesterday afternoon.
The A171 westbound at Birk Brow, heading towards Guisborough was closed by emergency services at around 1pm yesterday.
It is understood the accident happened between Stanghow Road and Margrove Road.
Emergency services were sent to the scene to deal with the incident.
No details of how many vehicles were involved or if there have been any injuries have been released.
A major road in our area is set to be temporarily closed from tomorrow.
A stretch of the A174 near to Saltburn will be closed off so that emergency repairs can be carried out following a gas leak.
The road will be closed to drivers at the Longbeck roundabout in order for engineers to fix the issue.
It is understood the repairs will take around three days and motorists will have to use alternative routes.
