Trade Unionists in Lincoln say they are not afraid of breaking the law, if a bill which could see people who go on strike having to give their names to the police, is passed in the Commons.
Union leaders are against the Trade Unions Bill, which would see the introduction of a 50 per cent threshold on all ballots for industrial action. The government says reform is needed, but members of the TUC in Lincoln say the Bill attacks the principle of the right to strike. Here's Nick Parker from Lincoln TUC.

Cats are more independent than dogs according to new research by Lincoln University.
The study shows that domestic cats do not see their owners as a focus of safety or security in the same way that dogs do.
Animal behavioural specialists have found that while dogs perceive their owners as a safe base, the relationship between people and cats is quite different.
The study observed the relationships between a number of cats and their owners, placing the pets in an unfamiliar environment together with their owner, with a stranger and also on their own.
The domestic cat has recently passed the dog as the most popular companion animal in Europe, with many seeing a cat as an ideal pet for owners who work long hours.
Previous research suggested that some cats show signs of separation anxiety when left alone by their owners, in the same way that dogs do, but the results of our study show that they are in fact much more independent than canine companions.
For pet dogs, their owners often represent a specific safe haven; however it is clear that domestic cats are much more autonomous when it comes to coping with unusual situations.

Relatives of the late American civil rights campaigner Rosa Parks will be sharing memories about her life and legacy at Lincoln's Festival800 today.
In 1955, Rosa famously refused to obey bus driver James F. Blake's order to give up her seat in the coloured section to a white passenger, after the white section was filled.
Her act of defiance became an important symbol of the modern Civil Rights Movement, and she became an international icon of resistance to racial segregation, later collaborating with civil rights leaders, including Edgar Nixon and Martin Luther King, Jr.
A host of national and international artists and human rights activists are visiting Lincoln for the Festival800, which is an artistic celebration of the Magna Carta and features Rosa in a giant Magna Carta sand sculpture.
