Distraction Burglary In Hull

January 14, 2014
By

Humberside Police are appealing for information following a distraction burglary on Martin Close in Hull between 1510hrs and 1530hrs on Saturday 11 January 2014. An unknown man attended the home of a 78-year-old woman and asked her for change from a £20 note when she answered the door. Handing over the change, the victim fails to receive the equivalent back as promised. The circumstances were repeated on a further two occasions – each time with the same man failing to return the victim’s money. The suspect is described as white, 6ft tall with a ‘stocky’ build. He had dark hair, a possible beard or moustache and he was said to be wearing dark clothing. Humberside Police Neighbourhood Policing Teams are completing visits to the affected areas to post awareness leaflets to make residents aware and additional patrols are in place. There is evidence the advice is working after an 88-year-old woman in Hull find out about distraction burglaries over the past weekend and denied access to a suspicious man (fitting a written description) who knocked on her property front door on Sunday night. Detective Sergeant Darren Rose, from Hull’s Priority Crime Team, said: “We are urging local residents to be…

Staff at Rafters in Driffield have benefitted from free training through East Riding College. Six learners have recently completed NVQ courses with the College, with four doing a retail qualification and two doing team leading. One learner, Laura Richardson, has been with the organisation since leaving school and has worked her way up to shop manager, with responsibility for 25 staff. Owner Andy Rafter said it has been rewarding to see her develop her knowledge and skills through experience and training. He said: “The College has really helped Laura with her development. I found she had the necessary skills in retail and she needed to develop management skills.

Godfrey Bloom Expresses Concerns Over EU Defence Force

Godfrey Bloom

Moves to form an EU-controlled military powerbase acting as a rival to Nato on strategic defence issues have been condemned by MEP Godfrey Bloom. “Under no circumstances must we be tied into an EU defence force or security strategy which places conditions on our troops and our military obligations,” said Godfrey Bloom, UKIP’s defence spokesman. “Members of the UK Armed Forces take an oath to The Queen and this country. “We can see with the Syrian situation that just because countries are geographically close does not mean they have the same foreign policy aims. “Our Parliament ruled out military intervention in Syria whilst the French – who were not involved in Nato for four decades – are all for attack,” said Mr Bloom, Euro-MP for Yorkshire & North Lincolnshire. His comments follow a report from the European Parliament’s majority group of MEPs, the EPP, which wants Europe to redefine its security interests and to begin achieving these by actual operational deployments. The EPP say that governments “have to start building stand-by forces under Union command” but this move has been branded by UKIP as the latest drift to federalism. A major EU summit is to take place in December when…
