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.

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.
