Flamborough RNLI rescued five people who had been cut off the tide around the North Landing area yesterday.

Lifeboat volunteers were called out at 6.44pm to reports of three people left stranded.

However, upon arrival at the West Scar area of North Landing, they found five people were in need of assistance.

Once all the casualties were accounted for, the lifeboat evacuated them safely from the rocks onto the beach.

"Always check the tide times before you venture out along the rocks and in the caves and never judge the length of time you have left to get back to the beach by just looking at the waterline, the tide moves very quickly and it can be very deceptive. Visit to learn more about how to stay safe at the beach, near open water and on the water."

Distinctive brass recovered from Bridlington

Police are asking for help to find the owners of a distinctive collection of brass recovered from a property in Bridlington recently.

The brass items were recovered following a recent search of a property in Bridlington. We don't know where the items have come originally from or who the rightful owner or owners are.

With the mining brasses it might be that the items were stolen from a house outside of our area so as many people that share the information the better and we can give them their items back.
