    The former parliamentary candidate Victoria Ayling lost her county council seat in the May elections and now she's decided to resign from the party.

    She says she wishes UKIP well and has joined campaign groups pushing for Brexit.

    She is proud of the work UKIP and Nigel Farage have done in the area, she adds.

  7. New rural crime plan for Lincolnshire to be unveiled

    Lincolnshire's chief constable, Bill Skelly, will today unveil a new crime prevention strategy for rural parts of the county.

    Bill Skelly

    Back in February, the new Chief Constable promised the National Farmer's Union that he would draw up a plan to deal with the issues faced by communities in some of the more isolated parts of the county.

    Today he'll return to the NFU to announce the Rural Community Safety Strategy.

    Lincolnshire Police say the three-year plan will concentrate on rural issues such as hare coursing.

    It will also focus on vandalism at heritage sites as well as thefts from rural businesses and churches.

    Mr Skelly says the strategy is about making communities feel safe, better connected and more confident.
