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."

Yorkshire Jets say they are going out of business after they were removed from the Netball Superleague.

England Netball added three teams for the 2017 season but the Yorkshire outfit were left out.

Mariana Pexton, Chair of Yorkshire Jets, said that the club had been 'overwhelmed' by the public's support in light of the decision but would cease operations in September.

Discussions are currently taking place about a final Jets event and legacy options.

"There is no doubt that losing our experience and expertise, on and off court, and those brilliant female role models, means that this is a sad day for netball and for women’s sport in Yorkshire."

– Mariana Pexton, Chair of Yorkshire Jets

"Yorkshire Netball supported the bid by Yorkshire Jets to represent the region in the Superleague and we continue to be extremely disappointed neither Jets nor Yorkshire will have a franchise in the UK’s leading domestic competition. It is a sad day for the sport in the region.

"We have been asked by England Netball to continue to run the performance pathway, to ensure Yorkshire’s talented young netballers have the best opportunities to succeed at the highest level, and we will do all we can to fulfil that important role."

– Pam Hoyle, Chair of Yorkshire Netball
