The Holderness Drain Flood Alleviation Scheme will reduce flood risk to more than 800 homes, predominately in the Bransholme and Sutton areas of Hull.

There are 139,992 homes and businesses at risk of flooding across the city, the highest number in a single urban area outside London.

Almost 130 properties and 1,000 hectares of land were flooded in December 2013.

It's hoped the scheme will protect 144 homes and over 5,000 hectares of agricultural land by 2021.

It's one of 13 flood schemes which will benefit from a total of £40m of investment.

A large part of the A1077, which runs through South Ferriby, will be better protected as a result of this scheme. As a key economic artery between Scunthorpe and Hull, better protection for the A1077 will secure existing businesses and jobs and stimulate economic growth in local communities.”

Commissioner's 'caution' over crime figures

The Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner Keith Hunter says figures showing a 15% increase in violent crime should be treated with caution.

PA

The force says crime it recorded increased slightly less than the national average, and there was a 9% fall in drugs offences.

Mr Hunter says it's hard to draw conclusions from the Office for National Statistics data.

The government and her Majesty's Inspector of Constabulary between them have changed the way police record crime every year for about the past decade. Therefore, trying to draw any conclusion from these numbers, you would need to be a statistician and have some great analysis to define anything from this."

There were 129 stalking offences in Yorkshire and the Humber in 2015, but last year the number rose to more than 1,000.

The number of recorded stalking offences has trebled in England and Wales since 2014 - but prosecution rates have plunged, figures show.

It comes after a report a year ago found police were putting victims at risk by not investigating or recording complaints correctly.

Increase in violent crime

There's been a 15% increase in the number of violent crimes recorded by Humberside Police between March 2017 and March 2018.

Police officers walking away
BBC

The figures are from the Office for National Statistics and also show a fall of 9% in drugs offences and a 5% fall in possession of offensive weapons.

Humberside Police says the 12% increase in overall recorded crime is slightly less than the national average.

Nationally, there continues to be an increase in overall recorded crime figures... As outlined in the report earlier this week, some of this is due to improvements that have been made in the way forces record crime. It also suggests that more victims are confident enough to come forward and this is something we welcome."
