TRAIN OPERATOR Northern says it plans to play classical music at Beverley railway station as part of measures to deter anti-social behaviour. The plan follows a pilot scheme conducted at nine stations across the North of England in the past 12 months which, Northern says, saw a significant reduction in the number of loitering, graffiti and vandalism-related incidents.

Beverley is now one of 23 additional stations where the scheme is being rolled out. The music, including Handel, Beethoven, Mozart and Tchaikovsky, will only be played at certain times of the day, which will vary from station to station to have the best impact on behaviour.

BISHOP BURTON College has been shortlisted for a prestigious national award due to its significant commitment to reduce carbon emissions across the campus. The college has set an ambitious target to be carbon neutral by 2030 and is in the running for the Future Farmers Award, organised by UK-based climate solutions charity Ashden.

POLICE have issued images of a man they want to speak to following a collision between a white van and a pedestrian that occurred on the main A165 at Skirlaugh last month. They say the driver of the white Nissan tipper-style van fled the scene following the incident.

It happened around 4.20pm in Main Street, Skirlaugh, on March 22 with the van colliding with a stationary vehicle and then hitting the pedestrian, who received hospital treatment for his injuries. Police have asked for anyone recognising the man in the photographs (below) to contact them on 101.
