    Litter at Horkstow Bridge. The issues continue in that members of the public use the area for recreational purposes such as fishing, meeting and using the river. Some people take vehicles to the area or use it as a short cut, others use the general area, as it is secluded, to ‘fly tip’.

    This remains an issue as the possibility of installing a bollard or barrier has been looked at, to prevent vehicular access and found to be not possible as this is an adopted road and therefore open to the public. This is also a public area and as such it is not possible to restrict public access, either by car or on foot. Some of the land around the bridge itself is private and land owners are responsible for securing this themselves, as ‘trespass’ is a civil issue.
    With the warm weather arriving, patrols have continued as reports have come to us stating ‘people were in the area’, with members of the public being spoken with and advised accordingly, though no offences were found at the time.
    Unfortunately, this area was recently subject to burnt out vehicle which has now been recovered.
    This has been a priority for some time now with suggestions and actions from partner agencies looked at and now exhausted.

  • Updated 29August

    Priority One - Horkstow Bridge

    Reports of youths causing annoyance by swimming and leaving rubbish. Reports of local residents using the bridge as a short cut.

    Action Taken:
    This is an ongoing issue which receives passing patrols from the Neighbourhood team and any criminal offences which the Police are responsible for that are found at the time will be dealt with accordingly. There are ongoing discussions with partner agencies. Following possible damage to the bridge from a stolen car being dumped there, action has been taken to prevent vehicles using the bridge with temporary bollards being used. Pedestrian access remains unaffected.

  • Updated 01October

    Priority One - ASB and Environmental issues Horkstow Bridge

    Reports during the summer months of Youths Causing Annoyance jumping off the bridge, swimming in the river and littering around the Horkstow Bridge area.

    Action Taken:
    Horkstow Bridge is currently closed to vehicle traffic and access is only to foot traffic at this time. Bollards have been placed on both sides of the Bridge. Due to change in weather conditions there have been a marked reduction in calls for service to this location. Patrols continue and any Police offences that come to light will be dealt with accordingly. Talks are still ongoing with Partner Agency Safer Neighbourhoods with regards to other non Police issues.

    Issues around Horkstow Bridge, Horkstow. Reports to the Police concerning youths causing annoyance to members of the public along with environmental issues such as litter.

    There have been no further reports of any disturbances or issues made to the police for some considerable time now. The barriers to through traffic remain in place with only foot access possible. I would suspect that this would have something to do with the fact winter is upon us. Having said that, Brigg Neighbourhood Team continues to make patrols where possible in this area.
    This is something that the Police are also looking at in conjunction with other partner agencies who have legislative powers over ‘none criminal’ concerns and issues.

    Action Taken:
    As per our previous update there have been no further reports to Police regarding environmental or ASB issues. The bridge is now open to vehicular access following a short period of closure.
    Brigg Neighbourhood team continues to monitor these issues along with partner agencies.

  • Updated 29January

    Horkstow Bridge - Previous reports made concerned fly tipping in the area along with youths congregating in nice weather, resulting in noise and more litter being left.

    This is still an ongoing issue for which we have not had any calls for a long time. This continues to be patrolled where possible as a ‘check’ to what is actually happening in the area. The bridge is now open to vehicles with the barriers having been removed following checks and repairs. This issue is likely to be removed from the NAT priority list at the next meeting on 30 January 2014.

  • Updated 01March

    Priority One - Horkstow Bridge

    Youths, litter and noise issues in and around the area of Horkstow Bridge.

    Action Taken:
    This is an ongoing issue which is now being addressed by Safer Neighbourhoods, rather than the Police as we have had no calls for service or any reports to us of any nature for some considerable period of time. As with all the previous updates on this site, patrols continue in the area, as with all areas covered by the Brigg and Wolds Team where issues have been previously raised.
    There is nothing new to add re this ‘NAT priority’ as there have been no issue in that location for some considerable time.

    Comments made during 2013 re issues of fly tipping and youths in the area around Horkstow bridge.

    Action Taken:
    This has been on the NATs priority list for some considerable time now with no complaints or issues reported to us for months and months. This area continues to receive patrols from the Brigg Team, just to monitor the area with no issues found to date.
    This ‘issue’ will be reviewed at the next NAT meeting during the first week of April and I would hope that it would be removed as a priority due to lack of issues found.

    Rural Crime.

    Residents, business owners, land owners and farmers living in Rural Isolated areas felt ‘abandoned’ by the Police.

    We did

    Overall this issue has had an enormous impact on the rural community. Business have struggled to ‘absorb’ thefts and damage, not only in the loss itself but by insurance premium hikes and the inconvenience caused by these incidents be it theft of fuel for farm equipment not being able to run or damage to crops which have a delayed impact later on in the harvesting season. The issue of Hare Coursing also caused issues again re damage to land and boundaries and trespass.

    Over the passed few years’ great leaps and bounds forwards have been made in this area since concerns were raised through the NATs (Neighbourhood Action Team meetings) and elevated to the Area Action Team
    We have listened to those living rurally who have been affected by this issue and addressed their concerns.
    There has been training for both officers/ call handlers and awareness for Magistrates. Humberside Police in the Scunthorpe division have created a position of Wildlife Officer who has had additional training and acts as a point of contact for members of the public and fellow officers.
    North Lincolnshire Country Watch mobile texting system was created and launched and is now an self sustaining initiative with which the police are involved and use on a regular basis to pass out information and ask for assistance as there is now a good sized membership with ‘extra eyes’ covering our Policing area.
    Additional patrols, prosecutions, special operations, vehicles seized and help from the helicopter have all helped in this strategy.

    Vehicles on Brigg Pedestrian Area/ Bridge Street and using the one way system incorrectly.

    Members of the public and Brigg Town Council raised concerns at the amount of traffic in the pedestrian area of Brigg, in that it shouldn’t be there in the first place, that road traffic offences by travelling against the one way system or entering via no entry signs are being committed or parking offences were an issue.

    We did

    This issue was taken and raised through the correct channels at NAT ( Neighbourhood Action Team ) meetings and created as a Priority for multi agency attention.
    Various solutions were discussed with action being taken by the appropriate department, such as research into some form of electronic or manual barrier system at the entry and exit on the precinct.
    Police Officers form Brigg, both Incident Resolution and Neighbourhood made additional patrols with tickets being issued for various offences. The council also assisted by use of and monitoring of vehicles on the pedestrian area by the CCTV system and by parking enforcement action ( some time ago parking offences were de-criminalised and North Lincolnshire Council took over enforcement of parking issues ).
    This area is still patrolled when possible and a permanent solution is still being sought.

    Parking Concern, Bridge Street, Brigg.

    A small number of reports received regarding a vehicle parked off the carriageway but on a grass verge, concerns raised that the vehicle was possibly causing an obstruction to view to road users.

    We did

    Neighbourhood Policing Team attended and assessed the location. There were no Police offences revealed at the time. It appeared that the vehicle if anything was acting more as a calming measure causing other road users to drive more cautiously rather than causing an obstruction. However, the registered keeper was located and spoke with and was made aware of the concerns raised, and the vehicle was later moved. Civil Enforcement Officers were made aware of the concerns raised and continue to monitor the location for any offences.

    Shortly before 1000hrs on Monday 17th February 2014 a woman was walking along College Yard, Brigg when she appeared to have been pushed from behind and to the side, this caused her to lose her balance.

    Speed of vehicles on St Barnabas Road Barnetby

    A concern was raised at the beginning of March 2014 regarding the speed of vehicles travelling along St Barnabas Road near the Primary School in the ‘Safety Zone’.

    We did

    This concern was initially raised by Barnetby Parish Council with North Lincolnshire Council, who then made Police aware. Around the end of 2013 a survey of vehicle speeds on the relevant section of road was made by NL Council.
    The results showed the average speed of vehicles in the area during the school morning drop offs and afternoon collections times to be between 21 and 23 mph, with an occasional vehicle being recorded at 25 mph.

    This reflects very well on the overall effect of the ‘Safety Zone’ outside the school with most drivers conforming and reducing speed accordingly.
    However, the Brigg Team will and have patrolled the area, where possible will continue to have a visible presence in the hope of reducing vehicle speeds further.

    Noise Issues

    Continuing reports of noise issues have been reported to us in and around the area of Garden Street and Queen Street at Brigg.

    We did

    We have made patrols of the area to monitor this and responded to calls by members of the public in relation to this noise issue by speaking/ advising and warning those responsible as to the possible consequences, however, this is something that is more appropriately addressed by North Lincs Council as they are better placed to deal with noise issues and have more appropriate powers.
    We have worked with NLC who have used their noise monitoring equipment at certain locations in Brigg.
    Contact has been made with other agencies and involved parties by way of informing them and working together to resolve this ongoing issue as soon as possible.
    Brigg Neighbourhood Team will continue to monitor this and assist where possible.
    Please note that reports re noise can be made to the council via their web site or by calling the Council switchboard on 01724 297000.
