Still no summons for drivers six weeks on

A few weeks after it was announced forty drivers near Mablethorpe were issued with summons for parking in a beauty spot overnight, none of the drivers have received them.

Those who parked on Huttoft Car Terrace now say it is because they think Lincolnshire County Council should not have handed them out.

They have said they will be parking there tonight and have challenged the council to issue the summons. Adam Fowler reports.


East Midlands Trains 'disappointed' at strike action

East Midlands Trains say they are 'disappointed' that workers' union Unite has chosen to strike next week.

They say they have put on extra staff to cope with any disruption:

We have put forward a very reasonable and fair offer, which represents a 2.75% pay increase to our engineering staff. We are therefore disappointed that Unite has chosen to take this action, clearly attempting to cause disruption for our customers.

During the industrial action, we will be working hard to deliver the best service we can and will have extra staff on hand at a number of stations to assist passengers with their journeys.
