Police car hit by object thrown from bridge

North East Lincolnshire

7 Jun 2019

A police car has been damaged after it was hit by an object thought to have been thrown from a bridge over the Peaks Parkway in Grimsby this morning Friday 7 June. 

The unknown object was thrown from a footbridge near to Pasture Street around 10am.

The officer driving had the vehicle’s blue lights on while on his way to support another officer who had stopped a disqualified driver.

The windscreen of the car was badly cracked. The officer pulled over the police car when it was safe to do so. Thankfully, neither he nor any other road users were hurt.

We are currently reviewing video footage taken from the police car and more widely to find out whoever was responsible. 

Chief Superintendent Christine Wilson, Head of Special Operations, said: “I do not and will not accept such reckless and frankly dangerous attacks like this on my officers. 

“Not only was it extremely dangerous to my officer but also to other road users as well. It is only good luck that there was little traffic on the road at the time and fortunately no-one was hurt.

“Furthermore, that vehicle will now be off the road for a period of time while it is fixed which means we have one less vehicle available to keep our communities road network safe. 

“If you have any information in connection with this, please contact us quoting reference 16/66671/19.”

A man wanted in connection with making threats to kill and possession of drugs is now in our custody as a direct result of his own social media posts.

We had appealed for help in tracing Nathan Baker, 36, from Cleethorpes, and his social media posts on his own wanted appeal helped us track him down to the Goxhill area.

Detective Inspector Kerry Bull said: “I’d also like to thank everyone who got in touch with information in relation to our appeal. Your help is always appreciated and can make a real difference to our investigations.”

17yr Appeared In Court.

A 17-year-old boy has been remanded into custody after being charged with possession of a knife.

Two Youths Arrested

Two youths arrested for possession of knives


15 Mar 2019

Two boys are in custody this morning following reports of youths threatening a man with a knife in the car park of a Grimsby supermarket.

We were called to the Ellis Way area of Grimsby at 1.45am today (Friday, March 15) and quickly arrested two boys aged 17 and 15 on suspicion of being in possession of a blade in public.

No one was injured as a result of the incident and two kitchen knives have been recovered by our officers.

Detective Inspector Kerry Bull said: “While, thankfully, we don’t have a serious problem with knife crime in our area, the alleged incident in Grimsby this morning shows that there are those in our community who think it’s acceptable to carry knives.

“What I want to make clear is that it’s not acceptable. Too many people have been seriously injured or lost their lives as a result of people carrying knives and we want to act now to stop this from happening to anyone else.”

Like all forces across the country, we have seen a rise in the number of people carrying weapons and are taking steps to stop this.

What’s most challenging is how readily available knives are, which is why we do all we can to get people talking about the issue by hosting events, supporting campaigns and through education sessions in schools.

DI Bull added: “We all have a role to play in taking these weapons off our streets.

“Throughout this week we have been supporting the national Operation Sceptre campaign, which aims to reduce the amount of people carrying weapons and give people an opportunity to surrender them to us anonymously. 

“However, one of the most important things you can do is to let us know if you know someone is walking around carrying a knife.

“By giving us this information, you provide us with the authority we need to stop and search those suspected of carrying weapons and prosecute those who are.”

You can let us know by calling us on our non-emergency 101 line, calling into your local police station or, if you would rather remain anonymous, calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
