    The Environment Agency says the dam is doing its job despite further rain and it will continue to monitor the situation in the days ahead.

    This scam involves victims being told to purchase high value goods or withdraw large amounts of cash and to hand it over to a police officer, who will visit their address to collect it.

    The fraudsters then allege the goods or the money are counterfeit, according to police.

    The force has reiterated its officers would never ask people to do this and is asking the families of elderly people to make them aware of this scam.

  8. Manchester man named as M62 crash victim

    A man who was killed in a traffic collision on the M62 has been named by Humberside Police.

    M62 fatal crash

    The accident happened at about 09:30 on 3 April when a lorry loaded with a static caravan which was travelling westbound went through the central reservation and collided with a black Lexus travelling eastbound on Ouse Bridge.

    Nigel Stuart Eley, 41, from Urmston, Greater Manchester, was pronounced dead at the scene.

    A 37-year-old man who was the passenger in the car remains in hospital in a serious condition.

    The 22-year-old driver of the HGV has now been discharged from hospital and has spoken to police officers.

  9. Calls to protect farm land from flooding

    Not enough is being done to protect agricultural land from flooding according to the chairman of the Drainage Board in East Yorkshire.


    Farmers in the area say the recent wet weather has led to one river bursting its banks which has left many fields saturated with problems for livestock and crops.

    The Environment agency says it is spending record amounts on flood prevention.

    But John Duggleby from the Beverley and Holderness Internal Drainage board believes the Environment Agency should do more to maintain the existing rivers, in order to reduce the risk of flooding.

    Quote Message: Farmers have two problems at the moment, the recent bad weather and now flooding of the land. We have had to keep livestock indoors, at this time of year they would normally be outside and on the grass" from John Duggleby Beverley and Holderness Internal Drainage Board
