What's Happening In Your Area?


Nuisance Motorcyles - Ashby ward wide 

Over recent months we have visited thousands of households across North Lincolnshire and we understand that the antisocial use of off road motorcycles is causing concern in your community. The policing team have been working really hard to respond to local concerns in respect of this issue and while good progress was made around some of our more urban communities, we recognise that there is still more to do – especially regarding the impact in our rural areas.

Over recent weeks and months we will continue to prioritise our activity around this issue, included a number of tactics as part of Operation Yellowfin.

We continue to undertake Op Yellowfin 'days of action' which is seeing more and more nuisance motorbikes being stopped and seized. We are absolutely committed to continuing in this approach while this remains a priority issue. 

We will use our powers under the Road Traffic Act and the Police Reform Act to target those who ride unlawfully and cause disruption to the community. Legislation under the Road Traffic Act will cover offences such as riding elsewhere than on a road, no driving licence, no insurance, disqualified driving. Legislation under the Police Reform Act triggers powers of seizure of motorcycles used unlawfuly or in an antisocial manner. The initial action requires a verbal warning to be issued to the rider if they have ridden carelessly or elsewhere than on a road. Their details and the details of the vehicle are then loaded onto the Police National Computer. Any further instances involving that rider (even if they are using a different vehicle) and that vehicle trigger police powers of seizure.  We do conduct an investigation into the offences of careless driving or driving elsewhere than on a road in any case, where the evidence exists.

We are appealing for information from our local communities as to the details of who is responsible for riding these bikes and also where they are being stored or housed.

UPDATE 15/06/2020

Over  the last month officers have seized 3 mopeds/motorbikes under section 165 no insurance, log 185 4/6/20, log 257 14/6/20 refer, 

We have had reports of an off road crosser riding around the Manifold road area, this is red & white,  the rider is wearing a High Viz bomber style jacket, with a white helmet (crosser style) with black markings on it, if you know who the rider is or where the bike is stored please call us on 101 to report

All over Scunthorpe we are still getting reports of the two red Quad bikes along with various crossers/ mopeds causing ASB on all wards if you have any information of who is riding them, or you can identify the riders,  maybe you know where they are stored please call 101 to report any information which identifies riders or addresses, or both.

Vulnerability - keeping people safe

Over recent years Humberside Police has made considerable effort to focus on Vulnerability. Everyone in the organisation has a responsibility to ensure the most vulnerable people in our communities are protected. Very often as a police service we are the first point of contact for many people. Having this contact enables us to identify vulnerabilities at an early stage. This will ensure that people who need support and protection receive the correct level of service from both the police and our partners such as social care, mental health services and services in the third sector.

A person is vulnerable if as a result of their situation or circumstances, they are unable to take care or protect themselves, or others, from harm or exploitation. Protecting vulnerable children and adults.

What do we do ?

  • by providing public reassurance through effective deployment of our resources
  • by working with our partners (ONGO, Longhurst Housing, NLC Safer Neighbourhoods, Victim Support, REMEDI)
  • gather intelligence in relation to any incident involving a vulnerable person to minimise the risk to them
  • maximise opportunities to secure evidence when offences are committed against vulnerable people to ensure offenders are brought to justice and reduce the risk of further victimisation

How do we do this ?

  • complete vulnerable adult assessments and share information with our partners
  • complete vulnerable child assessments for those under 17 and share information with our partners
  • complete Antisocial Behaviour risk assessments to decide on what support is required and work with partners to deliver this
  • ensure that high risk victims are referred promptly which triggers discussion at the Monthly ASB Panel meetings where all partners agree actions to support the victim and reduce their risk.

UPDATE 15/06/2020

PC Grant and PCSO Campbell have been dealing with a neighbour dispuite which is still ongoing both offering support to the victims as investigations are continuing, 

PCSO Campbell continues to work with a vulnerable male on the Ashby area, offering support by email and telephone on a daily basis,all other agencies are also working closely with the male now as well 

AntiSocial Behaviour Lakeside Retail Park

We have been receiving reports over October and November of youths causing annoyance, being disruptive and disrespectful at the retail premises on the retail park. In particular these issues are being experienced outside of Morrisons, McDonalds, KFC & Burger King.  This affects the businesses providing a service to the community and causes unnecessary anxiety to those using the facilities they provide. The youths congregate around the fronts of the businesses and inside, and in some circumstances are refusing to leave when asked to do so. This generates demand for the police who have to attend to minimise disruption and ensure offences are not being committed.

UPDATE 15/06/2020

Over the last week both Mc Donalds and Subway have now opened, as from the 15/6/20 all other stores are now opening, with social distancing and drive through service being offered please be mindful that visits to the area will take longer allow time for your journey, 

A male  has been identified from the CCTV footage from Mc Donald's regarding some crimianal damage  PC Grant is dealing .

Drug Dealing - ward wide

We understand there are concerns in respect of drug dealing across the Ashby ward and we are absolutely committed to taking robust action. There have been a number of proactive warrants executed over recent months as can be seen in Southfield Road, Cornwall Road, Marshfield Road and Everest Road.

Update 15/06/2020

 On 8/6/20 a closure order was served on an address on Everest road, Ashby officers are continuing to gather evidence for another property in Ashby with a view to serving a closure order 

An offender has been arrested in relation to the cultivation of cannabis enquiries are ongoing, 

 Operation Galaxy continues - which is a specialised team that are tackling drug dealing, cultivation and use. Please continue to report drug related matters. There have been numerous warrants executed in the Ashby ward area and several people have been arrested. The neighbourhood team take an active part within these operations. We will continue to target criminals and build up intelligence to secure warrants.

CrimeStoppers is a tried and tested method of reporting anonymous information to the police. We will assess and where the evidence exists, take positive action on reports of drug dealing, via this mechanism.

CrimeStoppers can be reached via their website or on 0800 555 111
