Crews were called to Dean Hall Brow - between Littlebeck and the B1416 - near Whitby after a single-vehicle crash involving a motorbike at around 12.45pm on Saturday June 18.

The man who was driving the motorbike was being looked after by North Yorkshire Police by the time fire crews arrived, who made the scene safe by cleaning up an oil spill using a hose reel jet.

Later that day, firefighters were called to Hunt House Road near Goathland after an area of foliage caught fire at 2.06pm.
