Whitby Coastguard were called to reports of two people in the water having fallen from a boat near the slipway in Robin Hoods Bay.

It happened at around 2.40pm today (Tuesday 13th August) and Ravenscar Coastguard Team and Whitby RNLI lifeboat's Inshore Lifeboat were also tasked to assist.

The Coastguard said:

"Upon arrival at the scene, Coastguards made a search of the area.

According to eyewitnesses at the scene, the casualties had been two youths in an inflatable kayak which had overturned.

Thankfully, they had been able to make their own way out of the water and shortly after, left the scene.

This was corroborated by a number of other members of the public. All units were then stood down.

If you see anyone in difficulty on or near the coast dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard".
