What's Happening In Your Area?


Vehicle Crimes – September saw a decrease to 2 crimes recorded, a GPS Receiver and signal box was stolen over the weekend of 6th-9th from a tractor unit in the Riston Road, Catwick. A NISSAN Navara parked between 8pm and 10pm 26/9/19 in a car park on Main Street Lelley was broken into via a forced door lock, several power tools was taken.    The KCOM crime prevention signs will be visiting various sites during October.    Please remove all valuables from your secured vehicle when left unattended and leave the glove-box open and empty to reduce the opportunity of becoming a victim.

Burglary reports  - there was a residential burglary reported to an unoccupied house in Withernwick, nothing is believed to had been stolen although there was damage to a rear patio door that had occurred sometime between 1st March and 24th September. Two garage burglaries reported for Ganstead Lane East, three cycles taken on 14th and a petrol lawn mower taken from an insecure outbuilding during 18th/24th. An attempt was made to enter a wooden shed on 28th, nothing is believed to have been taken.

Anyone with any information are urge to call 101 or CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111

Thefts – five thefts reported, two of these are thefts from a shop in Wyton where thieves had taken jars of coffee, motor oil and packs of cheese. A mobile phone was taken from a house on Carlton Lane Aldbrough. A suitcase of clothes left outside of a domestic garage in Great Hatfield during 17th/21st.

St Peter’s Church in Wawne was targeted overnight Friday 27 to Saturday 28 September.  Thieves removed the lead from the roof causing damage and theft worth thousands of pounds.  

This is the fifth theft of church roof lead in the East Riding in the past 10 days.  We are investigating all of these incidents as well as the theft lead from the roof of a bank in Driffield reported to us on 9 September. It is particularly disheartening to hear of people targeting churches as the impact on the local village communities is huge. This is a significant amount of lead and the five churches targeted have all suffered from damage to the roofs that will now have to be repaired as well as the replacement of the roof covering.

We appeal for anyone who has any information about these recent thefts to contact us so that we can identify those responsible and bring them to justice. We ask for the communities in towns and villages across the East Riding to be extra vigilant and to keep an eye out for anyone acting suspiciously.  If you do see something call us immediately on 999 so that we can respond and catch them in the act. 

The thieves must have used a large truck to take the lead away and they must have been there for some time. If anyone sees people working on a church roof contact us so that we can check that they are legitimate workers. If anyone, such as scrap merchants is offered a large quantity of lead please get in touch with us so we can add this to our lines of enquiries.

The other four reported offences have been committed between Sunday, August 25 and Tuesday, September 24, targeting churches in Langtoft, Hutton Cranswick, Lockington and Sigglesthorne.”

If you have any information you believe could assist us, please contact Beverley CID via our non-emergency 101 line, quoting incident number 16/108808/19.



Damage – five damage reports; two of these were towards vehicles – scratches on a bonnet Aldbrough Road Withernwick and a rear windscreen smashed to a vehicle parked Hornsea Road, Great Hatfield. An outer pane of glass to an upstairs window was smashed by unknown means on 28th Main Street Wawne. Fencing to the play park at Bilton was damaged by a group of youths on 28th. An incident occurred at the holiday park in Sproatley which resulted in a gate been damaged, a male has been charged with the several offences linked to this damage.

Field Fires – this still is causing an issues to play parks around the area, a quilt was set alight on the play park at Burstwick. A 12-year old boy set alight to some dried grass/shrubbery at the play park in Bilton, he has received a FAIRWAY warning regarding his behaviour as part of a Community Resolution along with a referral made to Humberside Fire & Rescue juvenile Intervention scheme. 

Our Priorities this month are to reduce:

Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) in general.   ASB continues around the Bilton area.  With darker nights setting in, the activities and festivities this usually brings, we are experiencing an increase in groups of youth congregating around the play park area which can be intimidating to passers-by, a number of small fires had been lit in fields nearby and some fencing has recently been damaged around the playpark. 

Rural Crime.  The trend generally at this time of year are towards higher value thefts from  farms and rural businesses due to staff spending many hours in fields at harvest.  Officers will be conducting drop-ins to farms and businesses this month to offer advice on target hardening their assets as part of tackling rural crime. Poaching season is upon us and hare coursing activity usually increases over the autumn months, Wildlife Officers will make rural patrols under OPERATION GALILEO to tackle and disrupt offenders involved in this activity.
FLY TIPPING is still a focus especially around the Wawne to Ellerby areas,  officers are still working alongside the East Riding Council Environmental teams to prevent tipping and gather evidence to support action against the culprits.

Theft.   We continue to patrol in a High Visibility manner to deter any crime and provide support and reassurance to the public.    An important source of information on those people are that are involved in either stealing or selling on the stolen goods comes from the public. Please contact us on 101 or ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you know who is responsible.   Please report any suspicious behaviour that you feel may be connected to rural crime

Speeding Complaints.  During October, Neighbourhood Police Officers will be out around the area with volunteers in the Community Road Watch Scheme educating drivers about the dangers of speeding on our country roads.
