The volunteer crew of the Redcar RNLI lifeboat were called into action in our area yesterday.
At twenty-five past midnight the Atlantic 85 lifeboat was launched to assist in Police in search.
The lifeoat was stood down a short time later after Police resolved incident.
The crew were then able to return to the lifeboat station at Redcar.
Tributes have been paid following the death of a local councillor from our area.
Cllr Chris Foley-McCormack was elected as a borough councillor in May 2015, representing Normanby Ward, and was re-elected in 2019.
She became a member of the Regeneration Scrutiny and Improvement Committee when she was first elected in 2015.
It then became Growth, Enterprise and Environment Scrutiny and Improvement Committee, and Cllr Foley-McCormack was appointed Chair of that committee (which is now known as Growth Scrutiny and Improvement Committee) in May 2022.
She was also a member of the Governance Committee and a member of the Regulatory Committee since 2016.
Posting on Facebook, a spokesperson for Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council said that their thoughts are with Cllr Foley-McCormack's family and friends at this sad time.
Redcar and Cleveland Council has announced it is planning further measures to curb aggressive begging in parts of Redcar town centre.
The council says it is sensitive to the needs of homeless people, but without taking action current issues will likely continue or worsen and shoppers and visitors to the town centre, along with people working in retail businesses, will continue to feel harassed, alarmed and unsafe as a result.
In the past three years Cleveland Police received 106 reports of begging related issues in Redcar and Cleveland, 46 of which occurred in Coatham ward, where Redcar town centre is located.
