Whitby RNLI's inshore-lifeboat was launched yesterday after it was reported that members of the public were in a position of danger at the West Pier.
Humber coastguard received the call around 3pm and requested the attendance of Whitby RNLI as well as the charity's lifeguards and the coastguard.
The inshore lifeboat was tasked with searching the shore and around the pier with assistance from the RNLI lifeguards on jetskis.
The coastguard searched the pier on foot. The group were located climbing to safety on the West Pier and were given safety advice regarding the tides.
