THREE TEENAGERS (one aged 15 and two aged 17) have been taken into custody after the car they were riding in failed to stop for police. The vehicle was brought to a halt between Brandesburton and Leven. All three have been arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle, one has also been arrested on suspicion of failing to stop for the police.

The incident happened on Tuesday afternoon – the day after the car was reported as stolen in East Hull.  The teenagers remain in custody as police inquiries continue.

A NEW exhibition called “Remnants” opens at the Beverley Guildhall next Wednesday, looking at fragments of buildings, and traces of industries and oddities around Beverley that have been abandoned, repurposed or are no longer in use today.

Kloskk Tyrer, who produced the exhibition, said: “We hardly notice some of the traces belonging to Beverley’s history which are hiding in plain sight today, but they tell the story of how people used to live and work in the town.

These remains are everywhere – from a piece of wall belonging to a long-gone pub to strange marks on walls and mysterious lettering on kerbstones. If you know where to look, these remnants of the past are all around us.” 

Remnants runs until Friday, June 30. The Guildhall, in Register Square, off Cross Street, is open on Wednesdays, 10am-1pm (to 30 April), then 10am-4pm (from 3 June), and 10am-4pm every Friday.

Admission to the building is free.
