Scare on Filey beach

EMERGENCY services raced to Filey Beach on Thursday morning after a suspicious object washed up.

A fisherman reported the object and lifeguards helped police to close off the area as a precautionary measure.

After inspecting the object, police decided it was not a risk to the public, before it was submerged by the tide at around 11:40.

A spokesperson for North Yorkshire Police said the object appeared to have been made up of cables.
