During the warm weather there were a number of issues at the above location but now that we are getting colder temperatures another issue is vehicles being at this location. On the Horkstow side and Winterton side of the bridge are road signs which confirm that no vehicles can be driven past that location unless they have permission to do so. The local team will be within and will take positive action.

Section 34 Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014: Authority to use section 35 Dispersal Powers. Officers will need to request that a Police Inspector puts this authority in place in order for a Police Constable or Police Community Support Officer, in uniform to exclude a person from an area for a period up to 48 hours (some restrictions do apply)

Using a Motor Vehicle in a Manner Causing Alarm, Distress or Annoyance: Section 59 and 60 of the Police reform Act 2002, Police (retention and disposal of motor vehicles). A Police Constable or Police Community Support Officer in uniform can issue a warning to the driver as well as the vehicle in question which will last for 12 months. If the driver or vehicle commits an offence under section 3 Road Traffic Act 1988 (careless and inconsiderate driving) and/or Section 34 (prohibition of off-road driving) for a second time then the vehicle that is being used will be seized by police. At the same time a fine can be issued to the driver.

At this time of the year we are still seeing people parking their vehicles at this location. Please ensure that you follow the road signs to prevent a ticket being issued.
