RNLI and coastguard teams had to race against the incoming tide yesterday to rescue a woman with a broken leg from the beach at Redcar.

The woman slipped on rocks and seaweed near the Redcar Beacon, causing a fracture to her lower right leg.

RNLI volunteers from the Redcar lifeboat station were called just after 12.30pm.

They administered pain relief while the on-duty lifeguards and the Redcar Coastguard Rescue Team immobilised the fractured leg.

With the tide reaching the scene of the accident, the woman was quickly placed onto a stretcher and carried to safety before being given further treatment until an ambulance arrived to take her to hospital.

 

Covid cases are steadily falling across Teesside, but a significant number of people are still being admitted to hospitals.

The latest government data shows 344 people battling coronavirus in our area's hospitals.

A further 18 coronavirus related deaths have also been recorded in the past two weeks.

Both Middlesbrough and Stockton remain in the top 10 areas with the highest cases in the country.

Redcar and Cleveland, which was at one stage the worst affected area in the country last month, has now dropped to 18th.
