What's Happening In Your Area?


Cottage Beck Road - Anti Social Behaviour/Begging/Rough sleepers

Police have been made aware of an increased amount of calls relating to begging and Anti-Social Behaviour on Cottage Beck Road mainly outside the Spar and Betfred.

Police have been attending the area when possible to disrupt activity and are working alongside our partnership agencies Safer Neighbourhoods, Environmental Health, Local Councilors and The Forge.

The team remain focused on maintaining the momentum of activity over recent weeks into the months ahead. We’re really proud to be part of the Frodingham community and understand the impact this sort of behaviour has been having on the community and also local businesses. We are working really hard with our partners to use a broad range of options to target those responsible and make Frodingham a Safer and Stronger Community for all. We have recently made 4 arrests over the past weeks and we will continue to enforce this action when it is necessary. We will also be working closely with the council and The Forge to offer support and engagement to those that need it most. 


17 November 2019: Arrests are now at 5 in total. Op Perak is in the area for support intervention. We are also currently looking at a closure of a property with support from our partner agencies.

Frodingham - Drug Supply

We understand there are concerns in respect of drug dealing across the Frodingham community 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 those of Holgate Road, Warley Road, Cliff Street and Lindsey Street, while the team have also worked with partners to close properties down under our Antisocial Behaviour Legislation.

Recently, this has seen a house on Lindsey Street being closed down on for three months. You said this was causing an issue - we have taken action to protect you from crime and antisocial behaviour. We have also recently executed a further drugs warrant at a property on Cliff Street.  

We have recently become aware of an increase in the use of Nitrous Oxide gas and that our local communities report finding discarded micro cannisters on the streets. We have issued a HEALTH WARNING in respect of the recreational use of Nitrous Oxide which can have serious health risks including :

  • Loss of Blood Pressure
  • Heart Attack
  • Fainting
  • Bone Marrow Suppression
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Poisoning of the Central Nervous System

The above risks can increase if combined with alcohol or other drugs. Our advice is clear - do not inhale this substance and seek medical advice if consumed. 

It is an offence to supply, or offer to supply a psychoactive substance under the Psychoactive Substance Act 2016 - which could lead to a sentence of up to 7 years and / or a fine if convicted. 

This type of action will continue. We are working hard to understand the nature of this problem and urge members of the public to report their concerns to their local team, to police through the 101 number or alternatively, by calling the independent charity Crimestoppers (0800 555 111).

Off Road Motorcycles - Across the ward. 

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 Foxhills Rd, Scunthorpe we recognise that there is still more to do.

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. You can see some of our recent seizures by scrolling through the Twitter and Facebook feeds below. 

We want to be clear- we will not be tolerating the criminal use of motorcycles in this way and we will use all powers at our disposal to recover bikes being used in this way and to hold those responsible to account. 

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 and so would encourage people with information to make contact on either 101 or alternatively, anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

3 October 2019 update

Five motorbikes have been seized from the area which were causing anti-social behaviour. Seven motorbikes were seized from a house in the Frodingham Ward area which were causing a nuisance in the Brumby ward area.
