The first new council homes to be built in twenty years in Lincoln have been unveiled today.

Lincoln City Council says the five new properties on Wellington Street are just the start and it plans to build dozens more like them over the next five years.

The council says it is trying to address a serious housing need, as thousands of people remain on a waiting list.
