  3. Police warn of increase in violence as restrictions ease

    A warning of an increase in violent crime and drink-driving has been issued ahead of further easing of Covid restrictions and the start of the delayed Euro 2020 football tournament.

    Community Support Officer

    A campaign to raise awareness of crimes such as domestic abuse, drink driving, one-punch manslaughter and sexual assault has been launched by the Assistant Chief Constable (ACC) of West Yorkshire Police.

    ACC Hankinson said: "After months of restrictions we want people to be able to go out and enjoy themselves, we also want people to get home safely.

    "With trips to the pub to watch the football and having friends over for barbecues in the garden, we do see increases in offences such as drink driving and domestic abuse.

    "We have had instances in West Yorkshire of one-punch manslaughter and people need to be aware of the potentially very serious consequences of a disagreement turning violent."

    People should consider their own personal safety, such as how much they drink and how they are going to get home, ACC Hankinson said.

    She added: "A good night can quickly turn bad if you find yourself in the back of a police van, hungover in a police cell or waking up in a hospital bed.

    "We want everyone to look out for themselves and each other and ensure that summer 2021 is a summer that we can all remember for the right reasons."
