POLICE investigating reports of sexual assault near to the Grovehill Road and Cherry Tree Lane junction in Beverley, have released an e-fit image of a man they want to speak to.

The incident is said to have taken place in early April, when a man approached a girl in the street before allegedly touching her inappropriately. 

Officers believe the man in the e-fit (pictured) may have vital information that could assist with investigations.

Anyone who recognises the man or has any information about the incident is asked to call 101 quoting crime reference 22*15762 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

SPEED CAMERA partnership Safer Roads Humber says it will be deploying more unmarked vehicles and plain clothes officers as part of its latest campaign to reduce road casualties. Figures show there were 41 deaths and 434 people were seriously injured in 2021 across East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire.

Safer Roads partnership manager Ian Robertson said: “From November onwards, our enforcement will be significant. You will see more of our vehicles and, instead of seeing the police camera van at the side of the road that’s marked up, for example, we might be using other methods. We may well be using our unmarked vehicles. We may be using staff and officers in plain clothes.”

PLANS for a drive-through coffee shop on land near the Killingwoldgraves Roundabout, where outline permission already exists for a petrol filling station, and close to the site of another filling station and Pret food outlet already under construction, were this week approved by members of East Riding Council’s eastern area planning sub-committee with only two objections.
