Officers fittest on Humberside

Humberside Police officers are among the fittest in the country after tests were carried out on forces across England.

Humberside Police among the country's fittest officers

Forty-three forces took part in fitness tests which will become mandatory later this year and Humberside were one of just two who boasted a 100% pass rate for both male and female officers.

On average one per-cent of male officers and eight per-cent of female officers failed the 15 metre bleep test.

Gwent, West Mercia/Warwickshire and the West Midlands were the country with pass rates of less than six per-cent.

The new fitness testing, which will become compulsory in September, was brought in after recommendations made by Chief Inspector of Constabulary Tom Winsor.

He recommended officers take a bleep test annually, with participants having to complete a 15-metre shuttle run in shorter and shorter periods.

Mr Winsor also recommended that from 2018 the tests should be made harder, using challenges based on the type of things an officer might face on duty, but this is being considered by the College of Policing in case it negatively impacts on women.

An investigation is underway after thieves escaped with 4ft ornamental chimney! It was stolen from a front garden of a house in Crofts Hill in Flamborough.

The chimney which had sat in situ for the past 25 year was originally cream in colour but had weathered over the years. Police say the thieves would have had to use a vehicle to take it away due to its weight. The theft happened overnight Monday 24th February.

"Although this appears to be the only garden theft in the area, anyone with ornaments in their gardens are asked to try to secure them in some way or mark them with your postcode or another significant marker which would detract the thief from taking your property. "
