Update on the evacuation of properties in Bridlington

Police issue statement to local residents.


Evacuation of homes in Oxford Street area

Humberside Police – Notice to residents

A multi-agency gold command group of key emergency services has reviewed the situation ongoing in Oxford Street, Bridlington.

On the advice from relevant experts and after a carefully considered risk assessment, a cordon imposed today is suspended overnight.

In the interest of the welfare of local residents, work being undertaken by scientists at the scene has finished for the evening, enabling anyone wishing to return to their homes tonight.

The cordon and evacuation will have to be reinstated at 8am tomorrow, with a view to restarting work at 9am.

We would like to reassure you that specialist scientists have advised us that it is safe for you to return to your property. Police officers will remain in the area overnight to keep you and the scene secure.

Scientists will need to continue on Friday, 5 August. This is because there is a risk to your safety while they are actively working in the house.  As a precaution it will be necessary for us to evacuate houses and prevent access again tomorrow. We are striving to allow all residents to get back to normality as soon as possible.

Whilst it is difficult to give a specific time when activity will be finished, we will aim for 8pm tomorrow evening.

This incident is linked to a 54 year old man being arrested.  We have well established multi-agency protocols and processes in place to ensure public safety and keep disruption to an absolute minimum.

We must stress to you that we don’t underestimate the impact of asking people to leave their homes. We would like to reassure you that public safety is our number one concern and it is a necessary decision.  The response from the public has been really positive and we’d like to thank you for your cooperation and continued support, and apologise for all the inconvenience caused.

Regular updates will be provided on our web site and other social media channels as work resumes tomorrow.

For specific concerns or enquiries during office hours please call the East Riding of Yorkshire Council helpline on 01482 393939.


If you require essential medication please call 111.
