    Taser training

    Humberside Police says the taser is a vital tool to help combat rising violent crime in East Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire.

    Insp Gary Jackson, who oversees taser training, says it is a "visual deterrent" which is "extremely effective in calming a person down and diffusing and gaining control of a situation" without even being used.

    People in East Yorkshire are being urged to be on the look out for a ruthless killer - the Asian hornet.

    An Asian hornet

    A specialist Asian hornet action team wants to recruit walkers and gardeners to be on the look out for the insect, which can decimate whole colonies of honey bees.

    One was spotted in Cottingham last year and it's thought it may have hitched a ride to the area on a car.

    Now, it's being warned that they could come to Hull on ships from Europe.

    East Yorkshire beekeper Chris Coulsen, a member of the Asian hornet action team, says: "It's a voracious killer of honey bees, it hovers outside the hive, bites the head off and takes the rest back for its young."

  12. Poisoned food warning to dog walkers in East Yorkshire

    Police have issued a warning to people who walk their dogs in East Yorkshire following the death of a buzzard which had eaten poisoned food.

    Dead buzzard

    The common buzzard was discovered between Millington and Huggate and toxicology tests found it had eaten food containing the highly toxic pesticide Aldicarb.

    Humberside Police say the substance, which has been banned for more than 10 years, is sometimes added to a bait like a dead rabbit to kill scavengers such as crows and foxes.

    Birds which eat carrion, such as red kites and buzzards, often become poisoned and there is also a risk to dogs and other wildlife, police say.

    The buzzard, which was found in October last year, also had three shotgun pellets in its body, although this was an old injury, and more recent wounds to its head, possibly from having been confined in a cage trap.

    Police say the circumstances of its death are unclear and have issued a renewed appeal for information about people "using these chemicals or involved in the persecution of birds".
