    A few of problems on our roads this afternoon, especially in the East of the county...

    It's all down to the same reason, they're all dealing with that dreaded word... roadworks.

    BBC Lincolnshire Live

    The country is still getting grips with what's next for the result for the UK following the referendum result on Friday.

    Some are happy and optimistic but others have concerns. One of those is Lithuanian migrant Egle Matulionyt who lives in Boston.

    Take a listen:

    An Ofsted report looking into care for some of the most vulnerable children in England has praised provisions in Lincolnshire.

    It highlights the county as an area where social work is making a difference to children's lives and praised its leadership team.

    I told you earlier about the Roman well in uphill Lincoln that you can no longer see into the bottom of. Well (aha) some of you have been in touch to share your opinions.

  16. New Mayor: A good deal or autocratic imposition?

    Alex Rhodes

    BBC Lincolnshire Live

    Paul Higbee has sent me an email giving his thoughts on the idea of an elected mayor for Greater Lincolnshire:

    Quote Message: The function of the proposed mayor is an autocratic imposition on the whole of Lincolnshire. The role is one that would benefit large populations and large corporations and cost tax payers money we can't afford." from Paul Higbee Email

    It's fair to say that all the comments we've had today have been overwhelmingly against the idea.

    However the Leader of the city of Lincoln Council thinks the devolution deal will be worth it:

    Quote Message: For years local government hasn't had enough power and control over resources... this deal is good for councils and local people from that point of view." from Ric Metcalfe City of Lincoln Council leader
