Motorbike taskforce continue to take action
At the weekend, officers from our motorbike taskforce have taken to the streets in partnership with the helicopter from the National Police Air Service (NPAS) as a part of a targeted operation to tackle nuisance motorbikes in Hull.
The team carried out a number of organised stings which enabled NPAS, the eyes in the sky, to help the taskforce riding the motorbikes to tactfully target those attempting to evade police whilst riding in an unsafe and anti-social manner.
Throughout the course of the weekend the team have successfully confiscated five motorbikes and arrested a total of four people resulting in the charge of two men.
• Hayden Shipley (24) of Marfleet Lane, Hull was charged with dangerous driving, driving without insurance and without a license.
• Joseph Higinbotham, aged 29 of Beckington Close, Hull was charged with assaulting an emergency worker, dangerous driving, failing to stop, driving without insurance and failing to provide a roadside drink/drugs test.
Both men have been released on police bail to appear at Hull Magistrates Court at a later date.
Launched July 2021, the motorcycle taskforce consists of 12 officers from Humberside’s Neighbourhood Policing Teams and members of Hull City Councils anti-social behaviour team.
Since launching, the team have achieved no end of success through positive engagement with the local communities, businesses and the local biker community.
Police Sergeant Chris Campbell leading this weekend’s action said: “We have continued to speak to lots of people in the community who have been really pleased to see our officers out on motorbikes tackling ongoing issues of antisocial motorcycle riding.
“We consistently work together with local partners and our local communities to bring about longer term solutions. This includes designing out access to locations where motorcycles are repeatedly used in this way, enhancing CCTV coverage to help identify those responsible and hold them to account and carrying out days of action to retrieve stolen motorbikes.
“Over the last week we have seen some increasingly dry and sunny weather and, as we head into the summer months, we are expecting to see an increase in reports across hot-spot areas.
“Throughout this period, we will be running community surgeries and keeping residents up to date through My Community Alert as we continue to tackle the issue.
“Whilst we continue to build on these positive relationships, I cannot stress enough how important it is for us to hear from our residents about the problems they are experiencing as this helps us achieve a better understanding on how we tackle the issues and build an intelligence picture. You can report any incidents to us on our non-emergency number 101.”
You can also report the misuse of motorbikes anonymously by calling CrimeStoppers on 0800 555 111 or by visiting our website for more information.
Officers from the Northern Policing team have been involved in identifying a number of known nominals for various burgalaries across the Hull and East Riding area. This has resulted in several Orchard Park nominals being arrested and charged, many of these are now either remanded in custody awaiting trial and sentencing or are subject to nighttime curfews.

UPDATED - Anti-social behavior by youths on motorbikes
Following on from our update regarding the motorbikes riding anti socially across the Orchard Park Estate. Over the last month officers have seized a number of bikes who have been riding both anti-socially and/or iligally.
Whilst this is also a hard problem to target due to the dangers involved we do continue to work with local residents, local authorities and other organisations locally and regionally to target this offenders.
More recently we have managed to recover a number of stolen motorcycles and indentify the offenders responsible.
One offender has been charged with two counts of taking without the owners consent and one count of theft of motorcycle following his release from prison. We are please to inform you he has recieved a 6 months prison sentence for these offences.
Another suspect who also recently left prison around the same time has been dealt with a string of offences and has also been re-committed to a young offenders insitute.
Following a number of reports from members of the public about groups of off-road motorcycles gathering on green land we have spent many shifts identifying those responsible and have also seized bikes from those responsible.
We have had great success and this shows as it appears that are less incidents reported. #OpYellowfin officers are routinely patrolling the area in unmarked cars, cycles and foot patrols.
The operation will continue.
Please continue to report incidents involving motorbikes!
From the start of 2022 we have been robustly dealing with those offending and causing problems that affect the local community. Part of this has unfortunately involved dealing with juvenile offenders causing anti-social behaviour. Due to the age of those offending we routinely are working with partner agencies such as Youth offending, council and housing/Anti-social behaviour teams to engage with those involved and their families, offering support and structure where possible and enforcement when needed.
We understand that ASB can cause significant problems for local people and we are committed to trying to resolve that problem. We are aware of a recent incident that shocked ourselves and the local community where a vulnerable member of the community was targeted and subjected to horrendous abuse at the hands of a group of juvenile males. We are happy to provide an update that the female involved has been safeguarded and given continuing support from local partner agencies and ourselves. In regards to the offenders, they have all been charged and are due to attend court again in the near future and we will provide an update when sentences are provided.
I understand that incidents like this are alarming but would like to reassure the public that when reported to us, we will do everything we can to identify offenders, tackle crime and protect our local communities.
If you wish to speak to local officers with any concerns, please contact 101 or pop down to Ellerburn shops on Wednesday 9th March 2022 at 1600 hours where PC 1199 will be present to speak with residents about any issues in the local community. In case of emergency, please contact 999.
