Covid-19 Vaccine Text Scam Alert

 We have been alerted to a highly believable scam which starts with a text and advises the user that they are eligible to apply for the vaccine and to click on the link in the text message.  The user is then led to a webpage, which looks very convincing and asks them to complete some details, in order for them to be able to apply for the vaccine.

The details asked for:

Date of birth
Proof of address
Card payment details

With the recent approval of multiple vaccines in the UK, these types of scam attempts are likely to continue, as fraudsters continue to take advantage of the rollout to some many people. Please click on the link for further information:


Guide to cyber security issued as fraudsters target farmers

Cyber attacks can be devastating for businesses and the individuals who are victims to fraudulent activity, it can affect agricultural businesses in a number of ways, including leaking of confidential data or financial losses.  As farms rely more on technologies such as GPS, remote sensing and unmanned vehicles, the risks increase.  Official statistics show a rise in reports of cyber attacks against the farming community, such as spoof farm machinery adverts that can leave farmers thousands of pounds out of pocket.  For example, in 2019 more than 60% of agricultural businesses reported one or more attacks, compared with 45% in 2018, according to one cyber security company.

New guidance is being issued to farmers to help them protect themselves from cyber attacks such as spoof adverts, scam emails and malicious software.  Put together by the NFU and the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), the online document aims to provide farmers with the tools they need to protect themselves from the most common cyber attacks.

Top tips for improved cyber security:

Ensure computers and mobile phones are set to install automatic updates
Replace old hardware, which may be more vulnerable to attack
Back up your data – perhaps on an external hard drive or USB stick or a cloud-based option
Switch on password protection and use fingerprint or face ID on mobile devices
Use things like tracking modes and remote data erasing modes on mobile devices
Download anti-virus products to protect from “malware” (malicious software)
Activate firewalls to create a buffer between your network and the internet

The new NFU/NCSC guidance identifies the main digital aspects that are at threat on farms, from the computers farmers use to send their emails and run their farm management software, to their automated machinery, security cameras and smartphones.

The guidance also offers advice on password creation, spotting and dealing with scam emails, texts and phone calls, and details of where to go for help.  For further information please use the link :



There have recently been several incidents in the village of Rawcliffe where vehicles have been broken into and property stolen. Please be vigilant and make sure that nothing is left in your vehicle overnight and your vehicle is secured. Good practice is to leave the glove box open and remove the parcel shelf. By doing this you are displaying to any opportunist that there is nothing in your vehicle of any value.


There have been an increase in incidents of youths causing an annoyance in Snaith especially on the Ben Bailey Estate area. Through social media, house 2 house, partnership working and speaking to residents we have names of those allegedly involved. We have been visiting these addresses and spoken to those identified. We are still in the process of speaking to the remainder. Please report on 101 the non-emergency number if you are experiencing problems still. In this way a log can be created which will enable us to have a true reflection of the issues and patrol accordingly. Please do not post directly onto social media without informing us. 


Residents in Snaith have been concerned with HGV’s contravening the 7.5 Tonne limit on the A1041 into Selby. This has been a real issue in Snaith due to the danger at the mini roundabout when drivers ignore the signs. Officers will be in Snaith and Airmyn looking for HGV's and tractors that contravene the weight limit on the following dates: 11th, 12th, 15th 16th and 17th March.

Catalytic converter thefts - how to protect your vehicle

We are warning motorists to be on their guard following a number of reports in the last month of catalytic converters being stolen in our areas (Goole, Pocklington and North Cave).

While all cars are potentially at risk, thieves are most likely to target hybrids, where the catalytic converter is used less and the metals are less likely to be damaged, or vehicles with a higher ground clearance, such as vans and SUVs.

We are investigating all the reports we have received and are following up a number of lines of enquiry. In the meantime, we want to help prevent further thefts from occurring, so please pass on our advice to anyone you think may be at risk and, if you see anyone acting suspiciously, please call us on our non-emergency 101 line.

Among the steps you can take to protect your vehicle are:

  • Speak to your local garage about having suitable locks or guards fitted. They can also advise you on getting your catalytic converter security marked to make it harder for thieves to dispose of.
  • Park your car in a locked garage where possible. If that isn’t an option, park in a well lit and busy area.
  • Park with your exhaust close to walls, fences or high kerbs, which will make it harder to access.
  • Catalytic converters are at the front of your vehicle, so park facing walls or other vehicles where possible, which will make it harder to remove.
