HULL: The city council is leading a crackdown on people abusing the blue badge disabled parking scheme.
It is a criminal offence under the Road Traffic Act and Fraud Act to use a fake, lost, stolen or someone else's blue badge.
Councillor Danny Brown, Lord Mayor of Hull, is a blue badge holder.
He said: "They are a tremendous benefit for people with a disability.
"Misuse of the system can be the difference between being able to get out to the shops, visit a friend, take part in leisure facilities or be stuck at home."
BRIDLINGTON: Officers in the town are appealing for owners of lost jewellery to claim items which are believed to have been stolen.
Detective Sergeant Matthew Peach, from Bridlington Criminal Investigations Department, said the town had seen a high influx of dwelling burglaries and there is still a large increase.
Among the items recovered police would like to return – fine jewellery, watches, earrings, a Pandora chain, costume jewellery, cuff links, rings and sentimental items.
If anyone wishes to attend a viewing of the recovered property, they should attend Bridlington Police Station or arrange an appointment by calling 101.
HULL: Police concerned for a missing young woman say she has links to the city.
Lisa Marie Robinson, 24, was reported missing on Monday from her home in Grimsby.
She is described as white, 5ft 7ins, of thin build, with shoulder length brown hair and brown eyes.
She was seen last wearing a pink hooded jacket, blue jeans, trainers and carrying a black and white check patent leather handbag. She also wears glasses.
Police are concerned for her welfare as her lack of contact with friends for a week is out of character.
