Hull: Hundreds of riders expected in the city

Bikers ride out for Operation Yellowfin

As a climax to Operation Yellowfin’s week of activity hundreds of motorbikes and riders are met in Hull on Sunday.

The ‘ride out’ on  15 April event was organised and promoted by motorcycle groups and supported by Humberside Police.

It’s to raise awareness of the ongoing work and the co-operation between officers and the wider community to reduce and prevent motorbike related crime across the city.

The event will start at Hessle Park and Ride, Priory Park around 9am and will see the motorcycles ride around Hull and engage with the public about Operation Yellowfin. Riders will travel in an anti-clockwise direction around the city for approximately 15 miles.

Officers will be at Priory Park to speak with the public and offer advice.

Chief Inspector Paul Butler, Humberside Police’s Operation Yellowfin lead, said: “This event will round up a successful week of activity for Operation Yellowfin which has seen our officers out and about all across Hull.

“Throughout the week there have been engagement events which have brought individuals and businesses on board, and has made everyone aware of the work we’re doing to tackle motorcycle crime.

“Petrol restrictions on illegal riders, crime prevention messages, scanning of suspected stolen bikes and parts, and our community engagement work are just some of the initiatives that have been underway.

“I’m extremely pleased that the message is getting out that we’ve listened, acted, and will not stop tackling motorbike crime. Whether that be theft, handling, stolen parts, or ASB and associated crimes.

Any motorbike crime can be reported to us using the word ‘Yellowfin’. You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 with any information.
