It's 30 years today since 56 people died, when a fire ripped through a football stadium as Lincoln City played Bradford City at their Valley Parade ground.
Today, a memorial service is being held to remember the victims of the 1985 disaster, with Lincoln's mayor and some councillors travelling to Yorkshire to represent the city.
Two Lincoln fans - Bill Stacey and Jim West - lost their lives. Tony Delahunty was commentating on the match 30 years ago - this extract reveals how the horror unfolded.
People will gather to mark the anniversary of the deaths of 56 footballs fans, including two Lincoln supporters, in the Bradford City fire.Read the full story ›
The huge 31-metre spire is being erected today in memory of those who lost their lives serving with bomber command.
A crane was used to lift the massive structure into place on Canwick Hill.
The site was chosen for its dramatic views of Lincoln Cathedral - a key landmark used by airmen in the Second World War.
The spire will be the focal point of a larger memorial, that will also house an education centre.
Work on erecting the Lincoln spire is coming along nicely .... looks like she's almost halfway up!
The huge task of erecting Lincoln's Memorial Spire - to honour the thousands of aircrew who served with Bomber Command and didn't come home - is underway.
The 31-meter spire is the first significant and visible development in the building of the new International Bomber Command Centre in Canwick Hill. It arrived on site early this morning on the back of two low loaders with a full police escort - and waved on its way by the people of Lincoln.
The Memorial Spire's design is based on two wing fragments, tapering as they rise towards the sky and echoes the Spires that form part of Lincolnshire's skyline. The height of the memorial is 102ft (31.09m), which is the wingspan of the Avro Lancaster; the width at the base is 16ft (5m), which is the overall width of a Lancaster wing. It will take the engineers approximately six hours to erect the Spire. The following weeks will be spent carrying out site welding and finessing, with the Spire due to be completed in late May.
Once finished, it will also be surrounded by memorial walls in a peace garden - which will bear the names of more than 55 thousand men who lost their lives in Bomber Command
Work on Lincolnshire's first purpose-built mosque will start today.
It's on the site of an old dairy farm in Lincoln and will cost £1.5 million to build. There will be rooms for praying, teaching and community activities.
Hundreds of local people have opposed the plans.
The spire, which will stand at a height of 31 metres on Canwick Hill will be taller than the Angel of the North.Read the full story ›
Controversial cuts to Lincolnshire's fire service have been approved by the county council as it tries to save more than £1m.
There will be fewer firefighters in some crews and some overnight cover will now be provided as an 'on-call' service instead of from a fully manned fire station.
