MPs Call For Strategic Investment In Flood Protection Around The Humber

Member of Parliament for Beverley and Holderness, Graham Stuart has joined MPs from around the Humber Region in a Parliamentary debate on the Humber Flood Risk Management Strategy. During the debate Graham pressed the Minister to ensure that the banks at Kilnsea and Welwick are reinstated and reinforced after they were damaged during the storm surge in December 2013. Next week the cross-party group of MPs, including Graham, will be taking their campaign straight to the heart of Government when they meet the Prime Minister to highlight the strategic importance of the Humber Estuary and urge him for greater investment to protect homes and businesses from flooding. Speaking during the debate Graham, who is also leading the River Hull Advisory Board, said, “Last Wednesday-25 June-was the anniversary of the 2007 floods. They devastated Hull and the East Riding, led to Hornsea in my constituency being cut off, and led to flooding in every area of my constituency and in Hull, with many people being driven out of their homes-not just for months, but in some cases for years. Flooding is personally devastating, and that will always be at the forefront of my mind when I consider this issue. “With rising […]

Dogs Banned From Beaches During Holiday Months

Dogs will be banned from four East Riding beaches from 1 May to make sure children, families and visitors can enjoy playing in the sand without stepping in something nasty. The ban by East Riding of Yorkshire Council will run until Tuesday, 30 September, the end of the holiday season. The four areas are Bridlington north beach from the north pier to a line extending east from Limekiln Lane, Bridlington south beach from the south pier to a line extending east from Kingston Road, Hornsea Beach and Withernsea Beach. The ban is also part of the council’s campaign to win the coveted Blue Flag Awards run by Keep Britain Tidy to those deemed to be the best bathing beaches. Dog exclusions are among the standards that must be met. Councillor Jackie Cracknell, portfolio holder for community improvement and performance, said: “Visitors love coming to our beaches. They are an important part of the economy in the area and we do all we can to inspire individuals to keep them clean. “The ban on dogs using the beaches lasts just for the summer season. The huge majority of dog owners know it makes absolute sense not to take their pets on […]

A Hornsea resident has received a criminal record after fraudulently claiming over £20,000 in benefits. Colin Wilce, aged 65, of Marlborough Avenue, Hornsea, appeared at Hull Crown Court for sentencing on Monday, 17th March after pleading guilty to dishonestly failing to disclose information, affecting his entitlement to pension credit and council tax benefit, at an earlier hearing. The case was brought to court following an investigation by East Riding of Yorkshire Council and the Department for Work and Pensions, who discovered via a data matching exercise that Colin Wilce had failed to declare capital in excess of £140,000. Mr Colin Wilce received a six month custodial sentence, suspended for 12 months, incorporating 180 hours of unpaid work. Mr Wilce was also ordered to pay £400 towards costs. In addition, he also has to repay the £21,990.21 he fraudulently claimed between July 2010 and May 2013. Andy Hardy, the council’s fraud investigation manager, said: “The authority’s commitment to joint working continues to be effective. We show a zero tolerance approach to fraudulent activity and are committed to ensuring benefit is paid to those who are rightfully entitled to it.” Anyone who suspects benefit fraud in the East Riding can call the […]
