    As we told you earlier, the head of Lincolnshire Sport, Janet Inman, says she'll announce a final project before she steps down from the role after 17 years.

    Alex Rhodes

    BBC Lincolnshire Live

    A 38-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving following the six-vehicle crash on the A1 yesterday. 

    It happened at around 08:00 and involved two lorries and four cars. A 52-year-old driver was pronounced dead at the scene and another had to be airlifted to hospital.


    Police still want to speak to any witnesses or anyone who may have dashcam footage of the crash. 

  8. Great grey day

    BBC Weather Watchers

    We're afraid it's looking rather grey out there after that fabulous start this morning.

  11. Domesday Book: In good company

    Alex Rhodes

    BBC Lincolnshire Live

    When the Domesday Book comes to the Castle this summer it'll take pride of place next to one of the four remaining copies of the Magna Carta in the specially designed vault. 

    It cost millions to build and was finished back in 2014 as part of extensive works to renovate the castle.


    It's had its issues in the past though, last year the Magna Carta had to be temporarily moved to a secret location because a fault with the roof meant the humidity levels weren't correct.

    It's all sorted now though so the National Archives need not worry!
