Last minute preparations are taking place in Lincoln for the thirty-first Christmas Market.
Hundreds of thousands of visitors are expected to visit the city for the market, which runs from tomorrow through to Sunday. Last year, the market was criticised because there was a one way system for pedestrians. It's been scrapped this year.
Car owners who received parking tickets during this year's Lincoln Christmas Market are being invited to appeal them. Parking enforcement officers handed out 389 tickets over the four days of the Christmas Market.
But following a consultation between Lincolnshire County Council, who hired the officers, and the City of Lincoln Council, who were in charge of road closures and resident permits, a decision has been made to look at all the tickets handed out in this area to residents .
The two councils are now working with the parking contractor to find out why tickets were given out to people who were parked legitimately. To appeal a parking ticket go to www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/parkingenforcement and click on Pay or challenge your PCN online at the bottom of the page,
More than 350,000 people are expected to pack into the streets of Lincoln over the next four days as the annual Christmas Market gets underway.
The 280 stalls at the market are expected to help bring in millions of pounds to the local economy. This year a controversial one way system for pedestrians has also been introduced to help ease the congestion seen last year. Kate Hemingway reports.
