Cordon remains in place following evacuation in Bridlington

A cordon remains in place in the Oxford Street area of Bridlington following the execution of a warrant this morning.

Humberside Police say this was part of a pre-planned operation on the street following reports of illegal chemicals being stored at the property.

Specialist officers attended as part of the warrant and a 54-year-old man was arrested and is assisting police with enquiries.

As a precautionary safety measure houses in the immediate area were evacuated and at this time officers from the EOD remain in attendance making an assessment of a variety of substances within the property.

Our key priority is the safety of the public and we thank them for their patience and understanding whilst necessary enquiries are undertaken.

We are working hard to return things to normality at the earliest opportunity. At this time we expect the cordon to remain in place until at least 8 pm when a further review will be undertaken.

Should the cordon need to remain in place, provision is being made to accommodate residents who have been unable to make alternative arrangements overnight.

We are working in conjunction with partner agencies to ensure those affected are provided for and plans are in place should the situation continue.

– Superintendent Dave Houchin from Humberside Police's Community Safety Unit

Flamborough RNLI rescued five people who had been cut off the tide around the North Landing area yesterday.

Lifeboat volunteers were called out at 6.44pm to reports of three people left stranded.

However, upon arrival at the West Scar area of North Landing, they found five people were in need of assistance.

Once all the casualties were accounted for, the lifeboat evacuated them safely from the rocks onto the beach.

"Always check the tide times before you venture out along the rocks and in the caves and never judge the length of time you have left to get back to the beach by just looking at the waterline, the tide moves very quickly and it can be very deceptive. Visit to learn more about how to stay safe at the beach, near open water and on the water."
