As the British Cycling Championships come to Lincoln this weekend, people are being reminded that road closures will be in place across the city.

It is likely to be the biggest sporting event ever held in Lincolnshire.
Over four days the British Cycling National Road Championships are taking place in the county.

Extra police are on patrol in Lincoln for two days as they aim to rid the city centre of legal highs. A ban was introduced there at the start of April and means anyone caught taking the substances can face a fine and have them confiscated. It was the first city in the country to make the move and in the space of two months 120 people have been stopped by officers. But there are still concerns that people don't realise how dangerous they can be or what the new rules actually are. Michael Billington reports.
Police in Lincoln are beginning a two day clamp down on legal highs in public places across the city.
Taking legal highs in the city has been illegal since April as part of the council's efforts to reduce anti-social behaviour. This weekend officers are hoping to raise awareness of the ban and the dangers associated with legal highs
