Police seize 10kg of 'spice' and thousands of pills in raid

More than 10kg of the spice drug and thousands of pills have been seized during a raid at a house in Hull.

Coleridge Street

Humberside Police said the drugs were found in sports holdalls at a property on Coleridge Street, along with Diazepam, Valium and Viagra, and a huge amount of amphetamines.

Officers say they also found stolen goods, which they think are linked to a number of burglaries and thefts in the city.

The discovery has also led to a second raid at a different property in another part of the city where more than £1,000 worth of a class A drug, thought to be cocaine, was seized.

Two men and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of possessing illegal drugs with intent to supply.

The sheer amount we’ve seized will take some time to process. We are confident we have disrupted the supply of a large amount of controlled drugs that could have seen their way onto our streets and further afield."

Hull 'leads' in limiting takeaways near schools

Health bosses say other towns should follow Hull's example and limit the number of takeaways opening near schools.

Fish and chips

Rules in the city mean new fast-food outlets can't open within 400 metres of any secondary school.

Public Health England say there are five times more takeaways in poorer areas compared to richer communities.

Claire Farrow, from Hull City Council, said the authority's policy was proving successful as it had already "turned down three planning applications for takeaways proposed in the exclusion zones".

Call for 'important' car collection to stay in Hull

There are calls for a unique collection of classic cars which are up for sale in Hull to be kept in the city.

Classic car

Some of the 25 Humber cars and limousines were used by royalty, politicians and celebrities.

The collections include one used by King George VI, who visited Hull during World War Two.

The cars were designed by Thomas Humber, who went to school in the city, and the cars were built in Coventry.

Owner Allan Marshall says he doesn't want his collection to be split up and the city's Civic Society hopes the "important" collection can be saved.

It's crucial for all of us to keep it together...It's not just about the cars themselves it's about the whole history. It's a national historical story about all the royalty involved and so on."

Family wants 'lessons' learned over court death

The family of a young mother who died after collapsing in a court building say they "hope lessons" will be learned following her death.

Hayley Gascoigne

Hayley Gascoigne, 32, from Scunthorpe, had a cardiac arrest in the public concourse area of Hull Combined Court Centre on 26 January 2017.

A coroner ruled yesterday she had died from natural causes.

The two-day inquest heard a paramedic, who has since retired, admit he made mistakes when he attended the incident.

Gary Long told the hearing he did not take a green bag with cardiac equipment to the incident, as he believed Miss Gascoigne had suffered a fit.

Miss Gascoigne's family have said they were shocked no defibrillator had been available in the court building.

If anything good is to come from these sad events we sincerely hope that lessons will be learned and no-one else has to lose their life in such a shocking way."

Mum who died in court 'badly let down', say family

The family of a mother who died after collapsing in a court building have said she was "badly let down" by the people who should have been looking after her.

Hayley Gascoigne

Hayley Gascoigne, 32, from Scunthorpe, had a cardiac arrest in the public concourse area of Hull Combined Court Centre in January last year.

Following an inquest a coroner ruled she died from natural causes.

Miss Gascoigne's family said they found it "extraordinary" that there was no defibrillator available in the court building.

After the inquest, which finished on Thursday, Terry and Kate Gascoigne said: "Hayley's collapse in court was horrific and it gets no easier to bear when you consider that so much more could have been done to try to save her."

The inquest confirms Terry and Kate Gascoigne's view that their daughter was badly let down by the people who should have been looking after her, and that an unacceptable amount of time passed before serious attempts were made to revive her. "

Detectives investigating the death of a Lithuanian man in Hull have repeated their appeal for two possible witnesses to come forward.

Police vehicles on a street

Rolandas Poskus, 52, was found dead on a grassed area on Dane Park Road on 15 June.

Detectives say they want to speak to a man and a pregnant woman who were seen walking down Arthur Street in the early hours of 13 June who may have vital information.

The woman is described as having long dark hair and was wearing a light coloured jacket, which was worn open, with a khaki coloured top and trousers.

She is believed to have been carrying a light coloured shopping bag as she walked down the street at about 01:30 that morning.

The man was seen walking a black and white dog on the street shortly afterwards. He was wearing dark trousers and a white t-shirt with a darker coloured shirt or jacket over the top.

Two men have been charged with murdering Mr Poskus and are due to appear at Hull Crown Court next month.

New police cars designed for rural areas

It'll be much easier to lock-up offenders in Humberside Police's new patrol cars.

New cell car
Humberside Police

The saloon-style vehicles have a secure caged area on one side of the back passenger seat, meaning officers don't need to call for a van when apprehending someone in a remote area.

The two cars should be ready for use in late July.

These modified cars will mean that officers don’t have to call on the larger prisoner transportation vehicles to bring people into custody and are a good vehicle to bridge the gap between our traditional squad cars and the prisoner transportation vans.”

New driver spared jail over pedestrian death

Pritti Mistry

BBC News Online

A 79-year-old new driver hit and killed a pedestrian less than three weeks after passing his test, a court heard.

Hessle High Road

Harold Milner, of Impala Way, Hull, pressed the accelerator instead of the brake when he struck 70-year-old Irene Moore as she was crossing Hessle High Road at the junction of Summergroves Way, in Hull, on 23 October 2017.

Hull Crown Court heard an officer called to the scene was unaware the victim was his own mother until he later heard her name on the police radio.

Milner was handed a four-month jail term suspended for 12 months and banned from driving for a year.

He decided to learn to drive so that he could take his terminally ill wife to and from hospital.

She was diagnosed with bone cancer and up until last year was the main driver, the court heard.

Sentencing him earlier, Judge Mark Bury said it was "not in the public interest" to send him to prison and described it as a "truly remarkable and unique case".

I have to live with my last memories of my mother not being pleasant and seeing her in such a distressing state... we hold no ill feeling towards [the driver] and do not support any custodial sentence."
