  5. Crackdown on rogue landlords in Lincoln

    Three landlords from Lincolnshire have been fined a total of £58,000 for breaching housing regulations, according to City of Lincoln Council.


    The largest fine, of more than £40,000, was given to a Lincoln man who failed to maintain his two properties on St Catherine's despite being handed an Improvement Notice.

    Some of the windows were broken, smoke alarms were missing and the toilets didn't work properly.

    In another case, a landlord was fined more than £16,000 when inspectors discovered his house in the Sincil Bank area, with six tenants, had no fire doors and an inadequate fire alarm system.

    And in another case, a landlord removed the handle of the front door so his tenant couldn't get in.

    The three landlords had a duty of care to protect their tenants and had failed to do so, said City of Lincoln Council.

  6. This evening's Lincolnshire weather forecast

    Plenty of cloud is expected in general but with a few localised clear breaks as well:

  7. Charity shop burglar jailed

    A burglar involved in a raid on a charity shop in Bourne has been jailed.

    Lincoln Crown Court heard how Jason O'Keefe was one of five men involved in the raid on the Barnardo's Shop in the early hours of 7 September.

    The 39-year-old, of no fixed address, was picked up by police later on that morning.

    Forensic tests on his clothing found fragments of glass from the shattered shop window.

    O'Keefe admitted burglary and was jailed for two years.

  8. Lincolnshire consumers urged to stay safe on Black Friday

    Lincolnshire Trading Standards is offering advice on staying safe from fraud during Black Friday.


    Ahead of Citizens Advice's National Consumer Week next week, the group is advising people to:

    • Check product details
    • Take screenshots of the items you buy, in case you receive something different
    • Use a safe payment method like PayPal
    • Go back to the seller if there's a problem

    More than 13,000 problems with purchases from online marketplaces were reported to the Citizens Advice consumer service last year.

    Quote Message: Far too many people are being ripped-off on online marketplaces. This National Consumer Week, we want to make sure customers know what to look out for when making a purchase - and their rights if something goes wrong." from Gillian Guy Chief executive, Citizens Advice
