Lincolnshire County Council has spent £42,000 over six years on taxis to transport staff about 160m (524ft) to a customer services centre in Lincoln.

The Conservative-led authority said it took action after concerns were raised by staff walking to Witham Park House from Spa Road during the winter months.

The council said it had a duty of care to its workers.
