Minimal Disruption At Weekend Says Humberside Police

Minimal Disruption At Weekend Says Humberside Police

The Assistant Chief Constable of Humberside Police has thanked the public following the first weekend of people being able to return to pubs and restaurants.

Paul Anderson said:

“As expected, many areas across Hull, East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire were busier over the weekend as people took advantage of the restrictions being eased and headed out to socialise together. 

Our officers were there to help keep everyone safe and make sure it was an enjoyable occasion and I’m happy to say that for the vast majority of people, this was the case.

While we did have to go to a handful of premises following reports of altercations, most were quickly resolved without the need for further action from us and very few arrests were made in relation to issues arising from people who had been out drinking.

It was also clear that while restrictions may have eased, people were mindful that there is still a pandemic out there and there are still government guidelines in place to help limit the spread of Covid-19.

It was obvious that the licensees and their teams had done a lot of work to ensure that measures were in place to mitigate any risk and we were happy to see that people were also taking a great deal of personal responsibility in keeping their distance from each other.

We’ll continue to monitor the situation and have additional officers in place, so that if any issues emerge or we find anyone to be behaving inappropriately, we can and will deal with them quickly.”
