Woman trapped under lorry in 'stable but critical' condition

A 57-year-old woman who was trapped under a lorry on Broadgate in Lincoln last week is in a 'stable but critical' condition.

Kate Nicol, 57, is currently being treated at Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham where her condition is described as stable but critical.

The married mother of three, who recently retired from a long career in the NHS, lives in north Lincolnshire. She suffered extensive injuries after she became trapped under a lorry.

Our only thought right now is supporting Kate in her recovery. We are very grateful for the good wishes we have received but request that our privacy is respected at this very difficult time.

There will be limited parking in Lincoln from today as work continues on the city's new £30m transport hub.

The council is closing three central car parks to allow construction to take place.

One, NCP St Mary's Street car park, closed on Saturday. Two others, Thornbridge and Sincil Street, will close tonight.

A document outlining parking availability elsewhere has been released.

"This major regeneration project will transform the city centre. However, while the work takes place there will be some unavoidable disruption and a reduction in the number of available car parking spaces in the city. The council is keeping its Thornbridge and Sincil Street car parks open over the bank holiday, but will close them at the end of Monday August 29, to allow the construction work to go ahead. The NCP St Mary's Street car park will close from 7pm on Saturday, August 27."
