In the last week of June we have had five thefts of outboard motors from Hornsea Boat Compound on South Promenade. It appears the suspects have used a ladder to scale the metal fencing of the locked compound. We are appealing for any other victims of this type of crime to come forward as it may be the case that during the lockdown period boat owners have not checked their property. We would like to record the true number of stolen items. If anyone has seen or heard anything suspicious please contact Humberside Police on 101. Of note a few days after the Hornsea thefts further outboard motors were stolen further up the coast at Wilsthorpe.
In the last month we have had only one incidence of criminal damage which occurred within a care home environment, when a resident broke a window after throwing a brick at it, the Investigation is still ongoing.
Hornsea Seafront and the surrounding areas of Mappleton and Cowden are experiencing an influx of visitors with the warm weather and the easing of lockdown rules. We are getting regular complaints from local residents about parking. Please, when visiting these areas, park sensibly and considerately without causing obstruction to driveways, footpaths and access for other road users.
