Farmers 'lining up' to sell grain before Brexit
A Lincolnshire company responsible for handling a fifth of the country's annual grain harvest says farmers are "lining up to sell" surplus product before Britain leaves the EU.
Open Field Agriculture is a farmer-owned cooperative based in Colsterworth, near Grantham.
It provides all of the grain for Warburtons, among other large contracts.
The firm's chief operating officer, Mark Worrell, has told BBC Radio Lincolnshire that he's anticipating an extremely busy period as "people look to trade in the certainty of a European marketplace versus the uncertainly post 31 October".
Owners Frank and Veronica Tett, who run Andrew's Hedgehog Hospital, near Scunthorpe, say they are "beside themselves".
At this stage we think time is running out for Stephen unless he has been released from the carrier. If the thief or anyone who knows him is reading this, will you at least tell us where and what you did with our hedgehog. He didn't deserve to be treated in this way and we hope you can live with yourself after what you have done."
West Yorkshire Police said it was investigating the theft.
Record number of vehicles seized on county's roads
Members of Lincolnshire's Armed Response and Roads Policing Vehicle (ARV) team say they've set a record in the county for the most vehicles they've seized in a month.
The ARV team has confiscated 57 vehicles so far this August , including eight just last night.
One of the cars taken off the road overnight belonged to a drug-driver armed with a knife:
Owner Frank Tett, who runs Andrew's Hedgehog Hospital in Scunthorpe, said: "We're all devastated here.
"He'll probably last four or five days without food or water. After that he'll just die. It'll be a miracle if he turns up."
Stephen was in a light grey coloured cat carrier which was inside the stolen van.
Mr Tett and his wife Veronica appealed for motorists to be vigilant on roadsides as they think the box might have been thrown out of the vehicle.
Police are investigating the theft.
The material things you can replace, but you can't replace a hedgehog. We'll travel to the ends of the Earth to pick him up."
People asked to remove 'magnet fishing' finds
People in Lincolnshire who take part in 'magnet fishing' are being asked to be careful and take their finds away.
The activity - where people use strong magnets to find metal objects in waterways - is increasing in popularity, partly because of coverage on social media.
The photo above shows items pulled out of the River Witham.
But Robert Braithwaite, from the Canal and River Trust, says large or dangerous items are often left behind.
"Our resources are being spread more and more with clearing up magnet fishing. You don't know what you're going to pull out of the water and ultimately, the items are being left on the towpath where they do pose a safety issue."
Lincolnshire councils pay out over £250k in compensation
Falling off donkeys, walking into
noticeboards and getting friction burns from slides are just some of the things
people have tried to claim compensation for from Greater Lincolnshire councils
over the past five years, it's been revealed.
Under a Freedom Of Information request to all the district councils, Lincolnshire County Council and North and North East Lincolnshire councils were asked for details of both successful and unsuccessful claims.
The Local Democracy Reporting Service said Greater Lincolnshire councils have paid at least £263,246.89, but not all authorities could give all their figures so the final tally is likely to be higher.
East Lindsey District Council had the most claims at 52.
Of those who responded, the highest successful claim was from North Kesteven District Council which paid out £32,414 for a slip/trip or fall claim.
There was an unsuccessfully claim to the City of Lincoln Council for slipping on bird droppings.
Turkish army pension fund to buy British Steel

Hospitals use AI to to help breast screening
The trust which runs Lincolnshire's hospitals is one of just two in the country to take part in a groundbreaking new trial using artificial intelligence (AI) to support breast screening.
Currently all images produced during mammograms are reviewed by two members of the breast screening team.
But it's hoped the new assessment tool will revolutionise the way scans are read and analysed in the future.
Simon Harris, from the East Midlands Radiology Consortium, said: "Artificial intelligence is very good at pattern recognition. It looks at a mammogram image and it looks at certain markers or signs that are in there which might be something of interest.
"It's not very good at creative thinking in the way a human would be, but it is very good at spotting differences in images."
Consultant mammographer Bernadette Trzcinski says she thinks it'll make a big difference.
"It also means the women we have to recall because we've spotted something on their mammogram which we want to have a further look at, we have more time to spend with those women who are very anxious," she says.
British Steel buyer is 'pure speculation' says union
The Unite union says talk of a confirmed buyer for British Steel in Scunthorpe being announced by the end of the week is "pure speculation".
But Unite says suggestions of a confirmed buyer are rumours and will meet with the administrator today to raise concerns about leaks.
British Steel went into compulsory liquidation in May, putting thousands of jobs at risk.
More than 60 weapons surrendered to police
A total of 63 weapons have been handed in to police stations across Lincolnshire as part of a two-week long firearms surrender.
Of the 63 firearms, there were four air pistols, 44 rifles, and 15 shotguns.
The guns and ammunition will be destroyed, police say.
We had a selection of weapons handed in. These included fully-functional weapons through to imitation weapons. Imitation weapons in the wrong hands can cause as much fear as live weapons. We are delighted residents have supported our campaign and handed in these weapons which will prevent them from getting into the wrong hands."
PCC rejects blanket ban on hands-free phone use in cars
Lincolnshire's Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) says he doesn't support a blanket ban on the use of hands-free mobile phones in cars.
A committee of MPs is considering today whether the use of hands-free should be banned in cars.
But Marc Jones, Lincolnshire's PCC, said: "An effective hands-free kit can be used safely in a car. So I wouldn't necessarily say a blanket ban is the way I would choose to go.
"If you went to an out-and-out ban you would just see an increase in people using mobile phones illegally. The fact that all vehicles are fitted with capacity to use telephones using Bluetooth - how are you going to disable all that technology in all of those vehicles?"
Mr Jones added that a ban would be "very difficult to enforce" and has called for MPs to find a "practical, pragmatic way forward".
County attractions among top 500 'unmissable experiences'
Four Lincolnshire attractions have been named among the UK's top 500 "unmissable experiences", according to Lonely Planet.
The travel guide company has included Burghley House (above), the Viking Way Walk, Lincoln Cathedral (below) and Woolsthorpe Manor on the list.
Lincoln Cathedral is number 78 on the list, the Viking Way Walk - a long distance trail running 147 miles between the Humber Bridge and Rutland Water - is 342 and Burghley House, near Stamford, is number 486.
Woolsthorpe Manor, childhood home of Sir Isaac Newton and home to the apple tree said to have inspired his theory of gravity, was placed at 384.
New dementia support service in Lincolnshire
A new support service for dementia patients and their families is being launched in Lincolnshire.
Three organisations - St Barnabas Hospice, Dementia UK and Lincolnshire County Council - are working together to provide the county with six specialist dementia nurses or "Admiral Nurses".
They will work with families to provide one- to- one support.
Tracey Carter, from Dementia UK, said: "Our focus, for want of a better word, is to try and enable families to stay in the here and now, to focus on the here and now and to develop a good quality of life and to help them live well with dementia. And then to feel less fear and less stress about thinking about the future and planning."
