Cyclist hurt in Filey road accident

A 67-YEAR-OLD female cyclist suffered head injuries following a collision with a blue Peugeot at the junction of Ash Road and Scarborough Road, Filey, at 11am on Monday.

A police spokeswoman said it was fortunate a paramedic was passing, and a community support officer offered assistance until the ambulance arrived.

The car was being driven by an 88-year-old man. Investigations are continuing.

A 19-YEAR-OLD woman was arrested on suspicion of causing criminal damage to a BT telephone box in Scarborough Road at about 10.30pm on Thursday.

FILEY firefighters were called to a controlled burning which got out of hand at Airy Hill, off the A165 near Primrose Valley, at about midnight on Tuesday.

Watch manager Nick Bennett said it was “a very large fire in the open” and the smoke could be seen from far and wide. No properties were threatened and it was left with the people who started it to put it out, at their request.

ANOTHER large blaze took hold next to the Royal Oak pub near Hunmanby at about 1pm on Wednesday.

It was a rubbish fire which got out of control and spread to a pile of wood and a dung heap, spreading across 100 square metres.

The smoke caused serious visibility problems on the A165 and the police were called. However, it was under control when they arrived and the road did not need to be closed.

Mr Bennett said it took firefighters about two-and-a-half hours to tackle the smelly blaze, which affected a large area.

No properties came under threat.
