Seven people have been arrested in Lincolnshire as part of an investigation into modern slavery.
Lincolnshire Police, assisted by officers from neighbouring forces and the National Crime Agency, this morning executed warrants at five locations around Lincoln, and two elsewhere in the country.
As part of the operation, seven people are being cared for by teams from Adult Care at Lincolnshire County Council with support from staff from the NHS. They are now in the process of being seen by medical professionals for health assessments.
Council staff in Lincoln are to be banned from taking smoking breaks.
The City of Lincoln Council executive is expected to agree the new rules today which will extend the current smoking ban to include council car parks, premises and surrounding areas.
Free on-street parking in Lincoln could be scrapped and parking meters brought in under new proposals by both the City of Lincoln Council and County Council.
It is just one option that is under consideration to help cope with the growth of the city. Another is a new park and ride scheme.
Calendar's Sarah Clark has been to speak to residents and businesses about how the changes could effect them and local trade:
On-street parking charges could be introduced in Lincoln as the council begins to introduce a new parking strategy for the city.
Currently parking in many areas of the city is free but the council believe this is reducing the money collected by council operated paid car parks.
Previous proposals to implement on-street car parking charges in Lincoln were rejected by the City Council Executive Committee in 2011.
The council believe the recent plans are more likely to be approved as the increased revenue could lead to the introduction of a park-and-ride scheme as well as two new multi-storey car parks.
The plans will be discussed at a council meeting on 22 September.
A woman will appear before magistrates next month charged with assisted suicide.
Lincolnshire Police said 22 year old Milly Caller from Great Hale near Sleaford will appear before magistrates in Lincoln on October 16.
The charge follows her arrest earlier this year in connection with the death of Emma Louise Crossman.
The widow of a biker from Lincoln who died from a brain tumour last year says riding into Skegness in his memory today was an emotional experience. Paula Green is raising money in memory of her husband Adi and was joined by around 60 other bikers.
The family of Adi Green decided to organise a poignant bike ride from Lincoln to Skegness in his memory because it was a journey he enjoyed making himself. Around 60 riders set from Lincoln at around 9am arriving in Skegness shortly after 11am.
Adi was a keen biker and regularly made the journey to Skegness with his wife Paula to enjoy a bag of chips together. Today was the first time she had retraced those steps since Adi's death on 30 August 2013.
It was following a car accident in 2004 that Adi was first diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour. Defying doctors who told him he only had months to live he carried on fighting and survived for a further nine years after various round of treatment.
Adi Green's widow Paula has set up Adi's Mission Fund and has so far raised more than £5000 for The Brain Tumour Charity.
A footbridge over a level crossing in Lincoln could face further setbacks. The bridge at Brayford Wharf East was given the go-ahead by the council last year, but it's understood Network Rail are carrying out a review into the design due to cost issues.
Around 60 motorbikers have staged a charity ride from Lincoln to Skegness in memory of a man from Lincoln who died last year from a brain tumour. Adi Green's family are now raising money through Adi's Mission Fund which supports The Brain Tumour Charity.
Adi's wife estimates they have raised hundreds of pounds with their charity bike ride and are hoping more money will come in with other fundraising events.
The creator of Downton Abbey, Julian Fellowes, was in Lincoln today to receive an honorary doctorate in recognition of his contribution to the arts.
Despite being an Oscar-winning writer and director and a member of the House of Lords, Fellowes - The Lord of the Manor of Tattershall - told Calendar reporter Adam Fowler, it was privilege to get the honour:
