A Conservative MP has called for the disbandment of South Yorkshire Police and the setting up of a Yorkshire-wide police force.

The call to merge all the forces, including Humberside, has come from Alec Shelbrooke following the inquests into the Hillsborough victims which ruled that the 96 Liverpool fans who died were "unlawfully killed". 

The Conservative MP for Elmet and Rothwell, Alec Shelbrooke

Consider very seriously whether the only way that faith can be brought back to policing in South Yorkshire... [is by] merging all four Yorkshire police forces and getting rid of the name South Yorkshire Police."

New voluntary code of conduct for jet skiers at Flamborough Head

Caroline Brockelbank

BBC Radio Humberside

Under the new code available online, jet ski users at Flamborough Head are asked to travel at a speed which would mean there's no wash when they're within 300m of the cliff face and also slow down if they're near any birds "rafting" on the sea.

The code of conduct has been developed following a workshop between jet ski users, the Personal Watercraft Partnership, local authorities, Natural England and the RSPB to try and reduce the disturbance to birds.
