Humberside’s chief fire officer fears gangs are deliberately luring crews to be attacked. The warning from Chris Blacksell follows a spate of wheelie bin blazes in the Boothferry estate area of Hull. He said concerns were growing that gangs were starting fires to lure crews to the area so they could attack them. During one such call-out a hose was cut with a knife. Figures from the fire service show there have been 31 attacks on crews across the area so far this year, including verbal and physical attacks and stones, bricks, glass bottles and other objects being thrown at crew and their engines.

Beverley-based theatre company She Productions has announced that it’s taking its eco-friendly family musical, The Fairy Who Fell Off The Christmas Tree, on tour throughout the East Riding in December, including performances in Beverley Library on December 18th, 21st and 23rd. Recommended for children aged four and over, the group told Beverley FM their set for this Christmas show is made entirely out of recycled materials and all performances are relaxed with acoustic sound and natural lighting.
