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 06/01/2021

In the last four weeks we have received two calls for service in regards to nuisance motorbikes on the Lakeside Retail Park. We have been conducting extra patrols at different times to try and identify persons. Do you know who is riding the bikes or where they are being stored? If so please call 101 to report.

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 06/01/2021

Please take into consideration of the below for crime prevention and COVID advice:

  • Keep your car keys out of sight and somewhere safe.
  • Lock all windows and doors if you are in or out.
  • Make use of the hand stations in our retails shops.
  • Make sure a face mask is always worn in retail shops.
  • Plan more time and not to rush.
  • Do not leave left over cardboard on show outside for people to see what you have got for Christmas.

The Ashby team are working closley with partner agencies with numerous addresses on the ward.

Country Lines awareness, this is to make people aware of ways to identify vulnerable persons who may be victims of exploitation, or being forced to engage in criminal activity by organised crime groups. If anyone has any concerns for a vulnerable person who may be being targeted and used or involved in County Lines please call 101 to report or crimestoppers we all have a part to play in helping them get the necessary support.The community team at Ashby station continue to work with various people in the area offering support and when signpost them in the right direction to receive support if required.
