Crime falls in village

NEW figures released by North Yorkshire Police show that Crime in Hunmanby has fallen dramatically.

Numbers show that in the period between April 1 and September 20 this year, the total number of crimes reported to Hunmanby Police fell by almost a third in comparison to the same period in 2010.

The most dramatic decline was in the number of cases of criminal damage reported to the police. In 2010, 37 incidents were reported to the police. However, that figure has dropped by nearly 75 per cent, with only 11 incidents reported in the same period this year.

There were also sharp falls in the number of burglaries and violent incidents reported to Hunmanby Police.

However, the trend was bucked when it came to incidents of theft, as there was a small rise in the number of incidents reported, with 61 cases this year compared to 56 in 2010. However, with the figures also including holiday camps at Primrose Valley and Reighton, the rise could possibly be explained due to a series of petty thefts there over the summer this year.

August was a relatively quiet month for Hunmanby police as well, with only 19 reported incidents , including four domestic disputes.
