He said: “Residents of The Oval and Denison Road will be delighted to see that ERYC have agreed to the request to remove the bus shelter.

“I would like to thank the ERYC officers, Humberside Police and, most importantly, the residents who I worked closely with to resolve the anti-social behaviour centred on the bus shelter. “The residents played a key role. They kept diaries and phoned 101 when there was any anti-social behaviour.
