The volunteers of the Redcar RNLI lifeboat were called into action in our area yesterday.
Just before 6pm yesterday evening, the Atlantic 85 lifeboat from Redcar was launched to a report of kayaker in trouble near to the windfarm.
The lifeboat crew carried out a search as far as Paddys Hole at South Gare.
However, the kayaker could not be found and the search was eventually called off.
The incident was logged as a call for help made with good intent.
Emergency services were called to deal with a fire which caused traffic disruption in our area yesterday evening.
Just after 6pm firefighters were called to deal with a fire between the Marton interchange and the Coulby Newham (pron "Colby knew 'em") turn off.
Smoke was blowing across the road, affecting the A174 westbound near to Marton and causing traffic delays.
It is understood the fire was extinguished a short time later.
