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 21/09/2020

Over the last month we have had reports of 3 Quad bikes in all areas causing issues, if you have any information as to who is riding them please call 101 to report, 

Pc Grant is been dealing with a male who was riding an off road bike on Everest field, he has been reported for RTO road traffic offences, parents visited, enquiries are on going, 

On 4/9/20 reports of a motorbike on Everest field on fire, both fire brigade and police attended, council made aware to remove the bike, At the begining of the month we had reports of Wheelie bin fires on and around Everest field, Fire Brigade attended on several occasions, on going enquiries,  

on 12/9/20 Pc Grant and PCSO Frear attended an address in Ashby after reports of a bike being ridden in the area, on checks the bike was seized under 165 of the road traffic act, male had no relevant documents he was reported for RTOs Road Traffic Offences, 

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 21/09/2020

From 14/9/20 to 21/9/20 we have had Country Lines awareness week, Pcso Frear has been visiting various Taxi company's and post office's to make them 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.

We had a concern for safety report on 19/9/20 where an elderly female had left her address and could not be located, officers attended Ashby area the lady was found and returned to her address and carers, 

At Ashby police station we continue to work with various people in the area offering support and when signpost them in the right direction to receive support if required 

BURGLARIES over the last week we have had an increase in all area's in and around Ashby of Vehicle Theft these are High value vehicles, please be vigilant, keep you keys out of sight when not in your posession, dont leave them near a window where they can be easily seen,  if keyless take steps to protect your fob, if you see anyone acting suspiciously or capture any good CCTV images day or night please call in on 101 to report 




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 21/09/2020

From the reports of ASB and Criminal damage at Morrisons 2 males have now been dealt with by PC Grant both have been interviewed at Ashby police station, both banned from Morrisons, ASB panel referrrals made, from enquiries a third youth has been identified a descision will be made on all 3, as enquiries are still ongoing

On 11/9/20 a section 77 notice Direction to leave the area, was served on a male who is living in a caravan on the lakeside area, 

We have had a couple of reports of reports of Vehicles an motor bikes, Quads causing issues in the area of Lakeside in particular Morrisons, we patrol the area when possible and have help from Special constables who regulary attend the area, 

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 21/09/2020

 On going enquiries are continuing into another closure notice on a property in the Ashby area, 

 Operation Galaxy continues - which is a specialised team that are tackling drug dealing, cultivation and use. Please continue to report drug related matters.
