Motorcycle thieves targeted with special spray

Motorcycle thieves in East Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire are to be targeted with a special spray which it's claimed will make it easier to track them down.

Humberside Police officers will also use the spray, known as the Offender Tagging Device or OTD, to identify motorcyclists who ride in an anti-social manner in Hull.

All 75 PCSOs in the city have been equipped with the hand-held spray, which will be used on riders or motorcycles.

The OTD spray can be used to identify a suspect if they're arrested at a later date and it has already led to one stolen bike being recovered, the force says.

The number of motorbikes being stolen in Hull has dropped by more than 76% in the last two years, Humberside Police adds.

A third officer is currently in custody, according to Humberside Police.

In a statement, the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) said it decided a "supervised investigation" was needed after assessing the referral by the forced.

Humberside Police made a referral to us following the officers' arrests. We have assessed this referral and decided that a supervised investigation is required. This is an investigation carried out by the force with the oversight of the IOPC."

Eight MPs from the area have written to the Home Secretary Sajid Javid to raise concerns about government plans to increase the amount police forces contribute to officers' pensions.

It could cost the force £2.6m next year and £6.6m the year after, according to Humberside Police.

We need to come together to support our police service in Humberside, otherwise the thin blue line might become just too thin."

Lee Freeman said eight officers, a PCSO, a special constable and a custody officer were all attacked.

The Chief Constable described the assaults as "completely unacceptable and not part of the job" and said that all the incidents would be reported.

Members of police staff expect to be confronted with violence, but it shouldn't become part of the job. We have a duty to protect the public and all too often we are prevented from doing that by violent individuals."

An estate agent, in Barton-upon-Humber, says a free crossing would have a significant impact for the local area.

Steve Burell said: "It would certainly open up North Lincolnshire to East Yorkshire, it would open up the area to a new sector of people."

Yesterday, Stewart Arnold, the leader of the Yorkshire Party, claimed if Yorkshire had similar political powers to Scotland or Wales, then charges may be removed.
