Local news

We have recently had reports of Anti Social Behaviour at the Snaith Methodist church. This year they have had three broken windows in June, another smaller window in October which was not reported to us. The most recent one was only a few days ago. There has also been graffiti on the church steps and a lot of rubbish being left there at the weekend including a condom. We are now patrolling the area on an evening. If anyone has any information then please could you report this to us via 101 the non emergency number. Also please to remind your children/teenagers that the church is not a play park and not to attend the area. We will be requesting details from anyone seen to be in the location. The latest incident has been reported only this week. There has been further criminal damage to the church. We have had complaints regarding unknown youths riding motorbikes on George Street Snaith. The males were not wearing crash helmets and were riding in a manner to cause harassment alarm and distress. We have footage of them and are in the process of trying to identify them. If you have any information that may help with their identity then please ring us on 101 the non emergency number .

What's Happening In Your Area?


On Friday 10 January and Wednesday 29 January we will be carrying out a speeding initiative outside East Cowick School. The head teacher has raised concerns regarding speeding and inconsiderate parking at dropping off and picking up times.  The pupils are in the process of designing a  'watch your speed' poster and the winning design will be shown to drivers stopped by us  for exceeding the limit or parking dangerously. We will be attending with a speed board on both of these days.

ASB Ferry Lane and Market Place, Snaith

Reports of youths congregating and causing a nuisance along with issues of littering and graffiti and general Anti-Social Behaviour at Ferry Lane, Snaith and in Market Place Snaith. Also reports of youths on motorbikes on Ferry lane Snaith. Allegedly the riders are speeding, generally causing a nuisance and riding without helmets. We urge residents to report any ASB in the area to Humberside Police via 101.


Local officers have been conducting high visibility patrols in the area and anyone caught engaging in such activities will be dealt with jointly with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.  We have also met with local councilors to discuss the ongoing issues in the area.

Throughout October and November   we  have been been holding street surgeries in Snaith. These have been high visibility patrols starting at the  fire station in the Market place. Along with the ward councilors and the ASB Officer Nikki Moulton, we have been targeting ASB hot spot areas and speaking to residents about their concerns.  We have been successful in identifying some of the youths causing issues and are dealing with them via our ASB process. Please feel free to join us on the dates below.

We are also in the process of finding a suitable location for the teenagers  to gather  on an evening.  There is currently no youth club in Snaith and after talking to the youths this is something they would like and will help to get them off the streets with the dark nights looming. If anyone knows of some where suitable within the town centre then please let us know.

There has been numerous reports of 'knock a door run' on the Ben Bailey estate in Snaith. This may seem just a minor thing but  when it is constant and over a long period of time this can be quite distressing to the residents. The knocks were described as 'thudding' and were targeting the same residents over a period of a few weeks.  We are pleased to say that the group involved have been identified and we are in the process of speaking to them in he presence of their parents. They will also receive warning letters from the council which stays on record.

There has been a complaint from Snaith Library  reporting  damage to their porch way , peeled away paint on the handrail, 
and the silicone been  picked  the  sealant at the bottom of the windows.  They are also reporting litter being left ,including what looks like used condoms.  Both the police and the council are aware.

There have been reports of a large group of teenagers in Snaith who have been causing ASB in the town centre ad being verbally abusive when challenged by members of the public. We are in the process of speaking to those allegedly involved and will take positive action  once we can prove this. I am attending Snaith High School On Monday 20th January where the group will be spoken to.

Visit to Goole Police Station from members of the local community
