Repairs to Lincoln Roman landmark start

Emergency repairs are being carried out on one of Lincoln's Roman landmarks.

A specialist stonemason is working on Newport Arch to repair damage caused by harsh winter weather, the City of Lincoln Council said.

Further long-term repairs are also being planned in conjunction with English Heritage.

"We've been assessing the condition, and consolidation work is now needed to make sure the stonework and a chimney next to it are safe", the council said.
