Humberside [ hʌmbəsaɪd ] from 1974 to 1996, a county in England.

Humberside was formed in 1974 at the mouth of the Humber area around with parts of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. The administrative headquarters was in Beverley, the largest city in the county was Kingston upon Hull. It consisted of the districts of Beverley, Boothferry, Cleethorpes, East Yorkshire, Glanford, Great Grimsby, Holderness and Scunthorpe. Humberside North Yorkshire bordered on the north and west to South Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire in the south west, Lincolnshire to the south and the North Sea to the east.

In 1996, the county was dissolved. They were replaced by four unitary authorities: Kingston- upon- Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire ( from Beverley, East Yorkshire, Holderness and the northern part of Boothferry ), North Lincolnshire ( from Glanford, Scunthorpe and the southern part of Boothferry ) and North East Lincolnshire ( Grimsby and Cleethorpes from Great ). Despite the resolution, the term ' Humberside ' still in use today. So it passes the Humberside Police, a Humberside Airport, Humberside Fire Service and BBC Radio Humberside
