  4. 'Best of both worlds' for business after Brexit - Minister

    A senior government minister says businesses in North East Lincolnshire can have "the best of both worlds" after Brexit.

    New government figures show almost £11bn worth of goods went through ports in North East Lincolnshire last year.

    Some companies are worried that may be more difficult and expensive after the UK leaves the European Union.

    But Treasury Minister Liz Truss, on a visit to the Port of Immingham today, says she believes growth will continue:

  6. Council staff overpaid by £1.7m

    Lincolnshire County Council staff who've been overpaid in error may be told they can keep the money.

    Salary overpayments totalling £1.7m were discovered at the council.

    The mistakes happened after private contractor Serco took over payroll - and more than £1m has so far been recovered.

    Where the overpayments are "relatively insignificant" staff will not be asked to give the money back.

    Sebbie Barnes, from the county council, says Serco will pay for the mistake not the council.

    Creditors have approved a rescue deal for the department store but the move means the company will press ahead and close 31 of its stores.

    About 280 jobs will be lost over both sites, it's thought.

  8. Man given criminal behaviour order for begging in Lincoln

    A 46-year-old man has been told he could face jail if he continues street begging in Lincoln.


    Eamonn Walsh has been handed a criminal behaviour order lasting three years which bans him from asking for money within a designated zone.

    It follows numerous charges of begging in Lincoln, particularly in the Bailgate area.

    Evidence suggests that some beggars claiming to be homeless actually have a home and Lincolnshire Police say this is the case for Mr Walsh.

    Sgt Jon Mellor, from the City Centre Street Policing Team, says the issue of people who are not homeless begging will not go away while well-meaning people continue give on the street.

    Quote Message: This diverts money from those vulnerable people who really need it and leads to more and more begging which can be persuasive, aggressive and intimidating." from Sgt Jon Mellor Lincoln City Centre Policing Team

  10. Police officers praised for 'courage' over arrest

    Six police officers who were assaulted last night in Grimsby while arresting and detaining a driver who failed to stop have been praised for their "bravery and skill".

    Three officers were injured while in the process of arresting the man and a further three officers were assaulted while he was in custody.

    They suffered bruises, scratches and shoulder, leg and hand injuries.

    The suspect was arrested on suspicion of failing to stop, dangerous driving, failure to provide a roadside breath test and assaulting a police officer.

    Ch Supt Darren Wildbore, from Humberside Police, said he wanted to commend the officers involved for their courage:

  11. Coastal residents urged to sign up for flood alerts

    About 80% of residents on the Lincolnshire coast who are at risk of flooding aren't signed up to receive warnings, the Environment Agency has warned.


    The free alerts provide vital information and aim to give enough time to prepare for flooding, but people aren't taking advantage of the service, the agency said.

    Thousands of residents in homes and static caravans along the Lincolnshire coast haven't even registered with its scheme.

    Local residents can sign up online, or by calling 0345 988 1188, the agency said.

  12. Lincoln lecturer calls for an end to 'fast fashion'

    A lecturer at the University of Lincoln is calling for an end to the so-called "fast fashion" culture.


    Fashion expert Victoria Bellandini says shoppers are putting the environment at risk by throwing out cheap clothes which are worn only a few times.

    Her comments come as it's been announced MPs will investigate the rise of cheap, disposable clothes and their impact on the environment.

    The "fast fashion" phenomenon - cheap clothing with a quick turnover which encourages people to keep buying - has come under fire over its environmental impact, including water pollution, the use of toxic chemicals and textile waste.

    Quote Message: We actually see clothes as part of this insatiable appetite for newness. We're changing ourselves all the time." from Victoria Bellandini Lecturer, University of Lincoln
