A 65-year-old man has been charged following reports of a theft on Shepherds Lea in Beverley last Friday; believed to have occurred around 10.30am. Steven Killingbeck, of Tilia Close, Hull, was charged with theft and fraud. He was released on bail to appear at Hull Magistrates Court on Wednesday June 28.

It is reported that a man selling tea and biscuits stole a purse from an elderly woman’s home. Her bank card was then used to withdraw money from an ATM.

HUMBERSIDE Police are supporting National Stalking Awareness Week and have revealed there are currently seven Stalking Protection Orders in place across the Force area, with many others in application stages. A spokesperson told Beverley FM: “We would like to offer our reassurance that we take all cases seriously and will do our upmost to protect any victim of stalking.”

He continued: “Reporting to us should be a priority. If you feel you, or someone you know, is being stalked by another person who is causing distress, help is available. Call 999 if you are in immediate danger, or our non-emergency number 101.”  

Stalking doesn’t necessarily mean being physically followed or threatened, he said, and can take several different forms, including turning up at locations they know you will be at or using social media and social networks. More information here
