Organised by Humberside Police in partnership with Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, the event saw officers offering crime prevention advice and free property marking, with the fire service giving advice on how to stay safe from fire and road safety advice.

The iCar simulator was available for visitors to experience realistic driving conditions and learn how to avoid car crashes.

Bridlington PCSO Kaz Hoyle was one of the officers taking part and said: “It’s a shame that the weather was so bad, we had heavy rain that evening and I do think it put a lot of people off coming.

“But those that did attend seemed to really enjoy themselves and got a lot out of it.”
