Plans to create a three-tiered seafront amphitheatre to boost tourism along a stretch of the Lincolnshire coast have been announced.

It is part of a scheme to revamp an area at Chapel St Leonards and would be "along the lines of the Minack Theatre in Cornwall", officials said.

Residents have previously called for the area, known as the Pullover, to be improved.

The development is a joint project between county and local councils.

Amanda Bond, development officer at Lincolnshire County Council, said: "The coastline in this area is truly stunning and our plans would create a space worthy of the beauty spot.

"Our overall aim is to boost tourism and enable visitors to make the most of the beach."

Plans for the 100 seat theatre will go on display during a consultation event taking place in the resort on 26 July.
