Man found critically injured on Cleethorpes street

An investigation is underway after a man was found seriously injured in Cleethorpes. A police community support officer found the man laid on a pavement outside a flat on Princes Road yesterday morning (Sunday July 123, 2014).

Cleethorpes business owners fear loss of train line

Business owners have expressed fears over proposals to scrap the direct express train line between Cleethorpes and Manchester.

The Department for Transport has begun a consultation on the Northern and TransPennine franchises, as ministers consider how best to use £1 billion of investment across the network.

But as Martin Fisher reports, many in the resort fear the worst:

Cleethorpes could be 'cut off' by loss of train line

The government is examining the possibility of terminating the TransPennine Express service from Manchester to Cleethorpes.

Instead the route would end at Doncaster, with a Sheffield to Cleethorpes service being operated by Northern Rail.

But local politicians say this would leave the area cut off from the rest of the country.

The government says many passengers from North East Lincolnshire do not travel all the way to Manchester on the TransPennine Express service, but get off at Doncaster to change trains.

This is one of the reasons why the Department For Transport is looking at scrapping the direct express service.

Police appeal for information following fatal motorcycle crash

Lincolnshire Police are appealing to the public for information after two collisions involving motorcycles in the county at the weekend.

One motorcyclist died after his yellow Triumph Daytona was in a crash with an Asda delivery van at around 3pm on Sunday near Frodingham.

Police appealing for witnesses to two crashes involving motorcycles

Officers believe a burgundy sports car might have been involved or in the area at the time.

A separate collision in Cleethorpes left another motorcyclist with life threatening injuries when he was in a crash with a red Vauxhall Corsa on Queen Mary Avenue.

A second motorcyclist involved in that crash has been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and driving over the prescribed limit.

Police are appealing for witnesses to either crash to contact them.


Cleethorpes woman jailed for £1.2 million fraud

A Cleethorpes woman has been sentenced to nine years in prison for fraud.

Hayley Brown

41 year-old Hayley Brown of Goodwood Lane, was arrested by Humberside Police in November 2009 as an investigation was launched into allegations of fraud and forgery totalling around £1.2 million.

Allegations were made that a number of people invested money ranging from £12,000 to £600,000 to invest in property in Turkey. The investigation found that £1.2million was alleged to have been paid to Brown in the belief that property investment would take place.

Police found that little of the money had actually left the United Kingdom. Instead it was used in a “Ponzi” type fraud to pay back earlier investors or to fund the lavish lifestyle Brown had grown used to.

Brown was found guilty of 12 Offences of Fraud and 1 of Forgery at Leeds Crown Court in January.

Brown was also found guilty of possessing a stun gun CS gas.
