Drive to end Holton le Moor flooding


From Lincolnshire County Council.

Following an investigation into recurrent flooding on the A46 at Holton le Moor, the highways team is pushing for repairs to nearby private drainage systems.

Water continues to overflow from a nearby reservoir, where water levels are still much higher than normal.

This situation is unlikely to change unless there is a prolonged spell of dry weather.

The council has met with the reservoir owner’s agent to explore whether any changes to the reservoir could prevent future overflow. This would be likely to require major engineering works.

The investigations also uncovered significant evidence of a collapsed section of culvert under the railway line, which is preventing water from draining away properly.

Until this blockage is cleared, it means relatively small amounts of rainfall are likely to cause further flooding.

This issue has been reported to Network Rail, who have visited the site to investigate.

Karen Cassar, assistant director for highways, said: We realise this is an extremely frustrating situation for local residents and motorists, and would like to reassure people we are doing all we can to put an end to the repeated flooding.

“The flooding is actually being caused by water flowing in from the adjacent land, which is privately owned.

“Despite this, we have cleared the nearby private ditch and jetted the system to help the water drain a little better.

“We are working with Network Rail to repair the drainage systems, and hopefully make further flooding less likely.

“If these repairs require any access to the local highway, the team is ready to grant permission as a matter of urgency so there’s nothing to hold them up.

“However, until that work has been done, further flooding is likely during periods of wet weather.”

House of Fraser Grimsby to close in March 2020

News was released today.


House of Fraser Grimsby will close its doors on 1 March 2020. With plans to redevelop the building, the landlord has now served notice on House of Fraser.

The Group had been working closely with the landlord for some time on a solution to keep the store open. Over that time the landlord has not charged rent, but the day-to-day operating costs of the store have been considerable, not least the business rates, but keeping the store open was no longer viable.

A spokesperson for Frasers Group stated: “We are thankful to the landlord for working with us over the past few months, to try to find a long-term solution for the store.”

The Grimsby store is one of a number that was part of the House of Fraser CVA process in 2018 and was originally earmarked for closure as part of that process.

It has only been through the joint efforts of both Frasers Group and the landlord in question that the store has remained open for as long as it has.”

More details will follow when known.

Police say Motorbike crime down in Grimsby and North East Lincolnshire from last year

Operation Yellowfin is our high profile initiative to tackle motorbike crime all across the force area.

You may have seen many of our online updates and social media posts regarding Op Yellowfin throughout this year, and seen the successes we’ve achieved on both the north and south banks.

It’s all thanks to the hard work done by all our officers, the intelligence they have picked up, as well as information passed on to us by the public.

In terms of motorbike thefts across the whole of North East Lincolnshire during the period covering July to September there was a decrease of 21.9%. (There were 32 thefts in 2018, and 25 in 2019,)

Over the two years combined the Sidney Sussex ward saw the highest number of thefts with 12. Waltham saw the lowest with 1.

In Grimsby where we have had a lot of reports of motorbike related antisocial behaviour there was a 29.9% overall reduction in ASB in 2019 compared to the same period in 2018. (2018 there were 134 incidents. In 2019 there were 95.)

Grimsby East saw the biggest reduction in ASB of 54.2% (48 in 2018, 22 in 2019) with Grimsby West seeing a 15.2% reduction (86 in 2018, 73 in 2019).

The East Marsh ward saw a 66.6% drop (12 in 2018, 4 in 2019) and Park ward saw a reduction of 54.55% (22 in 2018, 10 in 2019).

Some of the work that has been done has included:

  • Visiting local garages to speak to staff and display posters about restricting petrol sales to suspicious riders and bikes. 
  • Tracing and recovering stolen vehicles and tracing offenders to take relevant action.
  • Dealing with road traffic offences and issuing warnings when needed.
  • Checking alleys and rear gardens of suspected offenders and associates.
  • Seized motorbikes being ridden illegally.   
  • Applied for funding for DNA spray.  
  • Gave reassurance that action was being taken, and encouraged people to let us know where bikes were being stored.
  • Used social media and My Community Alerts to report seizures of bikes and success stories. In turn we used information from Humber Talking and from our communities directly to help in our work.

Between July-Sept 2019 there were five people dealt with for road traffic offences, one person dealt with for possession of a controlled substance, two recoveries and three warnings for causing alarm, distress or annoyance, four stolen vehicles recovered, one recovery for no insurance, and a warrant carried out on the Nunsthorpe estate to search for stolen motorbikes.

We also had help from Humberside Fire and Rescue Service and used a drone on Bradley Pitches to identify nuisance riders.

South Bank Operations Chief Inspector Paul French said: “Our work to tackle motorbike crime will carry on. We know that when motorbikes are ridden in an antisocial manner they can be a real nuisance and pose a real danger in all our communities.

“By working together we can make sure that that does not get any worse.

“Over the last year we have visited hundreds of residents across North East Lincolnshire as part of #HumberTalking and to ask people about the issues effecting their communities.

“The antisocial use of motorcycles has been a common theme raised across the south bank. From speaking with residents and businesses, we understand the negative impact this type of behaviour can have. This is not acceptable.

“Our proactive approach to tackling the antisocial use of motorcycles as part of Op Yellowfin is a great example of ‘You said, we did’ – and we are not going to stop.

“Our message to those intent on riding motorcycles in this way is simple, our teams will be relentless in their approach to seize your bikes, to bring you to justice and to improve the quality of life in our local communities.

“Many of these results as part of Op Yellowfin are only achievable due of the ongoing support of our local communities, and we would like to thank those who have and who continue to support this proactive approach.

“I would appeal to anyone who has any information about those riding motorcycles in this way, or where they are being stored to please get in touch either by calling 101 or alternatively using Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous.

“When you contact us always quote ‘Op Yellowfin’.”
