A man who defrauded his employer for more than £125,000 has been jailed for two years and eight months.

Founding member misses Lincoln Christmas Market

One of the founders of Lincoln's annual Christmas market has decided not to set up a stall at the event for the first time since 1982.

FFN Neustadt, from Lincoln's German twin town of Neustadt, says high costs and low revenue meant they made a loss last year.

The company was one of the 11 stallholders at the first ever event in Lincoln.

President Werner Maas says they couldn't justify the journey.

City of Lincoln Council says it understands FFN's position and the significant overheads of travelling from Germany.

But the authority says it's looking forward to welcoming FFN back next year.

The costs have been very high and we made not a profit but a loss, so we decided not to come. If you don't make a profit, that's OK, but if you make a loss that's not OK."
