Police were called to Saltburn yesterday evening following reports that a member of the public had discovered an unexploded grenade.
Five properties on Marske Road were evacuated and a cordon put in place around the area.
Explosive Ordnance Disposal officers were then deployed to the scene, with police urging residents and motorists to avoid the area whilst the incident was dealt with.
At around 9.30pm police confirmed that the area had been made safe and that the cordon had been removed.
Magistrates have agreed to close a rented house after hearing of neighbours being subjected to months of anti-social behaviour.
Teesside Magistrates Court agreed on Wednesday to close an address on Yeoman Terrace in Marske after hearing of complaints going back nearly 18 months.
The court ordered that the property be closed for three months.
Magistrates were provided with statements from neighbours who told of their fear of incidents involving the male occupant with some saying they had become frightened to leave their own home and the situation had affected both their mental and physical health.
The application for the Closure Order was brought by Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council with the support of Cleveland Police after months of evidence gathering.
Tributes have been paid to former Redcar RNLI Lifeboat Operations Manager Dave Cammish, who has sadly died.
Dave spent 32 years as a volunteer crew member at Redcar Lifeboat Station, retiring in 2014.
Scarborough-born Dave enrolled as a crew member at Redcar in 1982 and served on the station's lifeboats until 1996.
He then became one of the RNLI's deputy launching authorities, responsible for liaising with the coastguards when the lifeboats are tasked to an incident.
In 2007, he became lifeboat operations manager at Redcar and served in that position until his retirement.
Mike Picknett, the current Lifeboat Operations Manager at Redcar RNLI, said that Dave was a highly respected member of the Redcar RNLI crew, and a perfect example of the dedication and commitment all RNLI crews need so that they can continue to help with saving lives at sea.
