Amble Assault
On Thursday 12 October, we received a report of an assault in Queen Street. Police were quick to apprehend and arrest the suspected offender and enquiries are on-going. If anyone has witnessed the incident or has any information, we ask that you get in touch by calling 101 or using our online reporting service.

Youth ASB
There have been a number of youth ASB incidents within the Amble area. The neighbourhood team has visited a number of youths from Amble and Alnwick.

Police are working with Northumberland County Council and four tenancy warnings have been issued with regards to crime and ASB. Northumbria Police work closely with housing authorities and Northumberland County Council to take tenancy enforcement action against offenders.

We have also received reports of youths riding e-scooters on the paths and roads. They are hard to see in dark conditions.

Please be mindful of the following if you are considering buying your child an e-scooter as a Christmas gift this year: – Electronic scooters can be classed as a motor vehicle under the Road Traffic Act 1988 and therefore may require the rider to have the vehicle registered with the DVLA, appropriate insurance and a driving licence and other provisions in place to ensure the legal use.

If you’re using a private e-scooter you risk the vehicle being seized under S.165 Road Traffic Act 1988.

Vehicle ASB
There have been a number of reports of vehicle ASB at Morrisons, Amble and the surrounding area. Officers have conducted targeted patrols, stopping vehicles and speed watch in the area.

The car park of the supermarket has been highlighted as an area for vehicles being used in an anti- social manner. Police will utilise powers under section 59 of the road traffic act to seize and uplift vehicles from offenders.

Please report all ASB incidents via 101 or through our online reporting services. In an emergency always call 999.
