Lincolnshire County Council have been criticised after workmen painted double yellow lines on the streets in Stamford which failed to stick. The paint ran into the cracks of the cobblestones in the picturesque market town leaving an unsightly mess.
It is the second time the County Council have come under fire over the painting of the double yellow lines which they were forced to remove last month as they were not deemed to be straight.

The girlfriend of an inventor from Stamford says she won't be swapping her regular pram for his high-speed version for transporting their one month old son Jake.
Charlotte Stapling is used to watching her 33 year old boyfriend Colin Furze create mad-cap contraptions. He already holds the world record for the fastest mobility scooter. But she says she doesn't fancy testing out his new 50mph pram just yet.
This weekend Colin Furze will be taking his specially adapted motorised pram to try to break the world record for the world's fastest pram. To succeed he will need to reach 30mph but the inventor from Stamford hopes his creation will actually reach speeds of more than 50mph.
A man from Stamford in Lincolnshire is hoping his new motorised pram will become a record breaker this weekend. Colin Furze has fitted the specially built pram with an engine, complete with four gears. He hopes it will be able to go at more than 30 miles an hour this weekend.
The 33 year old has spent four weeks putting together the pram with a 125cc motorbike engine hidden between the wheels. He stands on a platform behind it and uses accelerator and brake levers to control the speed though admits it's not safe enough for his one month old son Jake to travel in.
