Lorry drivers can fight terrorist threat at Hull docks
Police in Hull are launching a campaign to encourage lorry drivers to report signs of terrorism and organised crime.
Thousands of drivers who travel through the King George Dock in Hull will be handed leaflets outlining the signs of criminal activity as part of Project Yali.
A hotline will also be set up for drivers to contact police if they see any suspicious activity.
Superintendent Tracey Bradley said: “The volume of traffic using the Humber ports on a daily basis is phenomenal and we believe a closer working with our partners in the transport business is essential to reduce the risk from terrorism and organised crime.

“If police and the local transport community can effectively work together by sharing information and intelligence we can better protect the Humberside area and vigilance at all times will be our defence.”
Leaflets and posters encouraging drivers to report their suspicions have been circulated to haulage companies, truck stops and on the P&O ferries.
The operation is being run with Crimestoppers, P&O Ferries, Associated British Ports, UK Border Force and Counter Terrorism Unit.
