A man has been jailed for killing a 58-year-old grandfather in a shooting in Carlin How.
32 year old Jamie Hellings fired an air rifle out of a car window on August 21st last year.
Mr Hellings admitted the manslaughter of Christopher Kay who died due to suffering serious chest injuries following the shooting on Brotton Road.
Mr Hellings, of Coronation Road in Loftus appeared at Teesside Crown Court in October, where he also admitted one count of possession of a firearm without a certificate on the same date.
Yesterday Hellings was sentenced to six years and eight months in prison.
He was also given a two-year concurrent sentence for possession of a firearm without a certificate.
The Redcar Coastguard Rescue Team were called into action in our area after concerns from members of the public.
Zetland FM's John Keeling said:
"The Redcar team were paged by the Humber operations room at just after 5pm on Tuesday, following reports of a buggy found on the promenade in Saltburn.
A search was undertaken by team members and the owner was quickly located.
It turned out to be a 'false alarm with good intent', and the team were stood down.
The public are reminded that if you see anyone in trouble on the beach or cliffs you should dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard."
