POLICE have confirmed that following an extensive search for missing Hull man Jamie Scott, who was last seen leaving a pub in Beverley on Saturday night, they have found a body on farmland between Weel and Hull. Extensive appeals had circulated on social media in an attempt to find Jamie, who was believed to be making his way home to Kingswood. 

Supt Rhod Troake said: “This is a tragic incident, and for his family and friends this is an outcome that no one wanted to see. It is thought that he had tried to make his way home and sadly succumbed to the weather conditions over the weekend.” And he continued: “Although formal identification has yet to take place, Jamie’s family have been informed and are being supported by officers.  Our thoughts remain with them and his friends at this extremely difficult time.”

BEVERLEY Civic Society has announced a full programme of events for 2023, starting on Thursday January 12 with a talk by Molescroft Primary School head Michael Loncaster about the International School Award, presented by the British Council, which the school has held since 2008, recognising the global context of its curriculum.

The meetings, which are held in St Mary’s Church, then continue monthly throughout the year, with February’s guest speaker being Jane Own, project manager of Hull Minster’s Back to Life Project. More details here

THE ORGANISERS of a charity Boxing Day swim on Bridlington’s South Beach have cancelled the event over fears about water safety. It’s come after the Environment Agency rated the water quality at South Beach as poor, advising swimmers against going into the sea.
