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

At around quarter to four on Saturday afternoon, the Redcar D class lifeboat was launched following a report of person in difficulties off Marske beach.

The person was found to be safe and was grateful that someone was looking out for them, however they were not in need of the lifeboat crews help.

The lifeboat then returned safely to boathouse.

Members of the public are reminded that if you see someone in trouble on the beach or cliffs you should call 999 and ask for the coastguard.

 

Improvement works are due to start on a busy roundabout in our area today which will mean significant diversions being put in place.

The works are being undertaken by Northumbrian Water at the Swans Corner roundabout, in preparation for the roundabout remodelling.

From next week, Guisbrough Road will be closed from Gypsy Lane to the roundabout for the duration of the works.

The closure will also reduce overall disruption to the area throughout the course of the project, access to residents and schools will be maintained.

 

This year's Redcar and Cleveland Inspiring Women's Award's took place on Friday, to celebrate inspirational women from across our area.

The annual event, which is held in memory of former Redcar MP Mo Mowlem, and is now in its sixth year, took place at the Wilton Centre.
