    We've been telling you about South Yorkshire Police's decision to put a dedicated team in the Burngreave area of Sheffield.

    It follows a rise in community tensions and an increase in crime.

    Quote Message: I recognise that this is a difficult time for Shimmer residents and I would like to thank them for their patience and reassure them they will be treated fairly and with compassion." from Paul Maynard Transport Minister

  6. I can see you!! Suspect fails to leg it from police

    Nick Wilmshurst

    BBC Local Live, Yorkshire

    Some criminals are devious, coldly calculating and dangerously clever.

    Some however are not, like this suspect in Halifax who tried to hide under a bed to escape police.

    Man under bed

    Officers say that they went to a man's house to arrest him as part of an ongoing operation across Calderdale and this was the spot he chose to try and hide in.

    Turns out it was a bad choice as the 30-year-old, who was wanted after he failed to appear at court for burglary offences, didn't do a very good job of concealing himself.

    West Yorkshire Police said on Facebook: "You will not be surprised to find out that yes we did find him - he will not be winning any awards for hide and seek champion soon!!!"
