  2. The weather across Lincolnshire this evening

    Paul Hudson

    Weather presenter, BBC Look North

    Clear spells to start the night but becoming rather cloudy with some showery rain possible in places. 

    Mist and hill fog may form in some northern parts of the region.  

    Not looking great for Elton John's concert tomorrow I'm afraid, it'll be cloudy and hazy once again during the day but we're expecting heavy showers as it gets later.

    Forget Candle in Wind it's probably going to be Candle in the Rain. 

  3. Have you seen this van?

  9. TT glory for Lincolnshire fireman

    Alex Rhodes

    BBC Lincolnshire Live

    You'd imagine it's a tough enough job being a fireman wouldn't you? 

    Well Ivan Lintin from Bardney combines being a fireman with also being a maintenance fitter and a motorcycle road racer.

    And Ivan's not bad at the racing considering yesterday he won the Lightweight title for the second year in a row at the prestigous Isle of Man TT festival.
