  4. Finish in sight for Boston's flood barrier

    The Environment Agency says Boston's flood barrier is due to be fully operational next year.


    The project, which will protect the town from flooding, is one of the biggest flood defence projects in the country.

    The metal barrier itself will be the size of a tennis court when it's installed.

  5. Better access to the University

    Network Rail is installing a pontoon bridge on Lincoln's Brayford Pool today.


    The firm says it will help access to the University of Lincoln.

    The Princess, who's the patron of The Boston Stump Restoration and Development Appeal is looking at the ongoing restoration work.

  8. Midwife resigns

    A midwife who says she was stopped from working because of her bright red hair has now resigned from the trust which runs Lincolnshire's hospitals.

    Donna Crichton

    Donna Crichton was told last June that her hair colour was not acceptable under United Lincolnshire Hospital Trust's (ULHT) uniform policy, even though she says her hair had been that way for years.

    ULHT says it has a dress code that it expects to staff to follow.

    Quote Message: I have to be who I am....I feel that the relationship with ULHT is broken beyond repair despite everything that I've done. from Donna Crichton Midwife

    The Making Tax Digital initiative, which comes into force today, aims to make tax administration more efficient.

    But the Federation of Small Businesses say it will be costly to members.

    Quote Message: The pressures are going to be on smaller businesses to decide whether to pass on some of those costs to their customers, or whether to absorb those costs themselves." from Neil Sharpley Policy Chair, Federation of Small Businesses

  10. Caps on fixed odds betting welcomed

    A gambling charity which supports people in Lincolnshire is welcoming new caps on fixed odds betting machines.


    The government has reduced the maximum stakes from £100 to just £2 in a crackdown.

    They're being promised new treatments such as physiotherapy and lifestyle advice alongside medication.

    Appointments will be held across communities instead of inside hospitals.

    Quote Message: People that need those treatments will continue to get those, but in addition will be offered... psychological support and access to advice in terms of lifestyle, diet, exercise, so they can adjust how they live their lives so they can learn to live with the fact they've got chronic pain. from Sarah-Jane Mills Lincolnshire West Clinical Commissioning Group

    The Princess Royal will today see the progress of a three-mile tunnel which is being dug under the Humber.

    Princess Anne will be given a tour of works on the tunnel, which will house a new gas pipeline running between Goxhill in North Lincolnshire and Paull in East Yorkshire.

    Work started last year on the £100m National Grid project, which is currently an estimated two thirds of the way to completion.

  15. Concerns over diabetes in Lincolnshire

    Health managers say type 2 diabetes has become an "enormous" problem in Lincolnshire.


    They say the county has some of the highest rates in England.

    Although it can be genetic, it's mostly caused by a lack of exercise and a poor diet.

    Quote Message: It's enormous. Some parts of our county, anything between 10 and 12% of the population have it. We think there's at least an equal number who are in what we call the pre-diabetes stage." from Dr Sunil Hindocha Lincolnshire West CCG
