THIEVES used stolen mopeds in a ram raid on a shop in Saturday Market, Beverley, before getting away with a number of items. The attack, on the Jo Malone shop, took place in the early hours of Sunday morning and police have issued CCTV images as part of their investigation.

Officers say a black Honda PCX was one of two mopeds used and have appealed for anyone who can help with information to contact police on the 101 non-emergency number quoting Crime Reference Number: 22101955. Alternatively people can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

The CCTV images released clearly show at least two thieves inside the store, either wearing hoodies or balaclavas to conceal their identities.

COUNCILLORS on an East Riding planning sub-committee have gone against officers’ recommendations and supported proposals for a new hangar, together with new toilet and shower provision, at Hull Aeroclub’s Leven airfield. Officers were recommending refusal of the plans amid concerns about possible flooding. A final decision will now be made at a full meeting of the planning committee.

EAST RIDING Council’s Humber Forest initiative is on track to have planted 192,000 trees this year and has set ambitious targets for 2023. Available funding covers large and small projects and all agreed costs of tree planting, hedgerow creation, and maintenance for up to five years – it can also include support for tree protection, fences, gates and more.

In addition, the Queen’s Green Canopy, the national initiative encouraging people to plant trees to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, that was due to come to an end at the end of 2022, has been extended until the end of March 2023. For more information, visit:
