    As part of our Save A Life campaign, BBC Radio Lincolnshire has now helped to teach a total of 19,241 people lifesaving CPR - otherwise known as Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation.


    Lincolnshire charity LIVES and St John Ambulance have helped us teach CPR to people across the county, with the aim of getting 20,000 people trained up by the end of the year.

    That surpasses our original target of 10,000 by a long, long way.

    A 92-year-old victim of mail scams from Lincolnshire is calling on the government to do more to protect people like him.

    Prizedraw scams

    Frank is believed to have spent about £60,000 on mail scams over almost 20 years.

    He entered bogus prize draws thinking he was going to win tens of thousands of pounds.

    Trading Standards say 350 people in Lincolnshire have been scammed out of more than £2m in the last 18 months.

    Frank says the mail should be seized before it gets to victims:

  8. 'If you can use sat nav, you can use defibrillator'

    Alex Rhodes

    BBC Local Live, Lincolnshire

    Up to 70% of people who have a cardiac arrest cardiac could survive if they were treated with a defibrillator - but the same proportion of people in the East Midlands say they don't feel confident using one.


    A report by St John Ambulance says there's still a long way to go in teaching people what to do in an emergency.

    The message from the charity in Lincolnshire is that defibrillators are a lot easier to use than people think:

    Quote Message: If you can use a satnav, you can use a defibrillator. You open the box, switch it on, listen to what it's telling you and do what it says. That will save a life." from Peter Howie District manager, St John Ambulance in Lincolnshire

  10. Trust makes £1m from hospital car parks

    Lizzie Musham

    BBC Local Live, Lincolnshire

    Lincolnshire's hospital car parks have made more than £1m for the trust which owns them over two years.


    Figures obtained by the BBC show that from 2014 to 2015 United Lincolnshire Hospital's Trust, which runs hospitals in the county, made about £447,000 in parking charges. The following financial year this amount went up to £560,000.

    At the start of this month the trust increased car parking charges for visitors at all their hospital sites from £1.40 an hour to £1.60.

    ULHT said the increases were in line with local government rate rises and were still lower than most other NHS trusts in the region.

    They also said they did not make a profit from charging staff and patients as the income from car parks covered their cost.

  11. Artists wanted for #200Fish North Sea exhibition

    A community arts project in Louth is looking for artists to help with an exhibition featuring all 200 species of fish living in the North Sea.


    The #200Fish project aims to raise awareness of environmental issues.

    Spokesman Biff Vernon said the project was open to beginners as well as established artists.

    Biff says the aim is to put all the artwork on show in 2018 to get people talking about "our relationship with the sea".
