Plans for a new £600,000 bridge across a Lincolnshire river have been announced by the county council.

The new Boston footbridge will replace the current bridge across the River Haven which is a key route for pedestrians in the town.

County council engineers have said while the bridge remains safe to use, structural defects have been found which means it needs replacing.

Residents will be asked to give their views on different designs from June.

The new bridge will be jointly funded by Lincolnshire County Council and a European Union grant.
