    Carla George

    BBC Local Live, Lincolnshire

    County Councillors have supported plans to look at making Lincolnshire's heritage services more self sufficient to save money.

    If approved the authority would withdraw funding to seven visitor attractions - but allow them to keep the revenue they make.

    However the council denied the attractions like Lincoln Castle, Gainsborough Old Hall and other County museums would be cut adrift.

    Nick Worth, who leads on heritage said the sites should be looking to focus on events, weddings and retail offerings as extra income sources in the future.
