    BBC Lincolnshire Live

    Ten ravers, who were among a mob that attacked police attempting to close down an illegal event at Twyford Woods, were today jailed after admitting being involved in the violence.


    The court was told that 26 police officers were injured in the violence in May last year at the Forestry Commission site at Twyford Woods alongside the A1 in the south of the county.

    Officers were punched and kicked and had missiles including bottles and scaffolding poles, thrown at them and at one point ravers sprayed police with diesel fuel.

    Eleven other defendants were jailed yesterday.

    Quote Message: Partly people are concerned about how it's going to work and they have a right to get the best answers we can give them now, but also I think we need to explain that this is a longer term process and hopefully I'll provide some of those answers tonight. from Matt Warman Boston and Skegness MP

    For the third consecutive year, North Kesteven is being dubbed the safest place to live in England and Wales.

    The district council says it's all down to the crime rate.

    During the past year there were fewer crimes in the district than anywhere else in the country.

    Young ringers from around Lincolnshire, some of whom recently took part in a national competition, will be at Lincoln Cathedral tomorrow to ring the bells.

    No pressure, then, guys. No pressure at all...
