The volunteer crew of the Redcar RNLI lifeboat was called into action in our area yesterday.

Just after twenty to two yesterday afternoon, the Redcar D class lifeboat was launched to assist two girls who had been cut off by the tide at Redcar.

The girls were spotted by a concerned member of the public, near the Beacon, who raised the alarm.

They were rescued by the lifeboat crew and were given first aid for cuts.

The lifeboat then returned to the station at Redcar.
