The remains of the Buck Beck Beach Bench are still smouldering after Tuesday night’s fire. The fire could spread quickly if the flames reach the nearby dunes.

Resort management officers have been at the site today and cordoned off the remains. Please stay away from the area.

If you know who started the fire or saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area, please report it to Humberside Police on 101 and quote the reference ‘Operation Seabird’.
