One person had to be taken to hospital and another two were injured during an alleged incident at a cocktail bar in Redcar.
Emergency services were called to the cocktail bar on Station Road at around 10.40pm on Saturday.
The North East Ambulance service says that on arrival at the scene their crews found three people injured and took one to James Cook hospital for further treatment.
The nature of the incident has not yet been revealed.
The volunteer crew of the Redcar RNLI lifeboat were called into action in our area at the weekend.
At 11.47am yesterday morning the Atlantic 85 lifeboat was launched to assist a small inflatable that had lost power off Marske.
The crew of the inflatable managed to restart its engine, and the crew of the Atlantic 85 lifeboat then escorted the boat back to Paddy's Hole at South Gare.
The lifeboat crew were then able to return to the lifeboat station at Redcar.
A former steelworks structure has been brought down in a controlled explosion.
The Coke Ovens Screen House at the former steelworks site in Redcar was demolished at 2pm on Friday.
Ten explosive charges were detonated simultaneously to bring down the 39m rectangular structure.
Built back in 1979, the coke ovens were made of 132 individual chambers and were a huge park of Teesside's proud steelmaking past.
Following the blowdown of the main portion of the Redcar Coke Ovens in June last year, the Screen House was one of the final structures to be brought down.
After the demolition, staff from the Teesworks site surveyed the area to make sure all explosions had been detonated in the blast, before giving the all clear.
