The number of beds at the hospital was cut four months ago after fire safety concerns.

The hospital used to have 50 beds, but at the moment only 16 of them are in use.

Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust, which runs the hospital, says a lot of work still needs to be done to make it fully safe for staff and patients.

Two men charged over police assault

Two men, including one from Grimsby, have been charged with assaulting police officers after an incident in Louth at the weekend.

Sharon Edwards

Political Reporter, BBC Radio Lincolnshire

Lincolnshire's only livestock market could be saved tonight - if councillors vote to keep it open.

Louth's market faced closure - ending more than 400 years of livestock trading in the town.

But a recent meeting of East Lindsey District Council recommended it should be refurbished instead.

It goes to a full vote this evening.

"Exceptionally rare" crucifix found on coast

BBC Local Live, Lincolnshire

A rare crucifix found on the Lincolnshire coast is from an "archaeologically invisible" era of history, according to an expert.

The artefact (pictured), which was found in Skidbrooke near Louth, is thought to be almost a thousand years old.

It's been dated as being from between 950-1150AD.

Archaeologist Adam Daubney says it's an "exceptionally rare" item because discoveries from Anglo Saxon times are few and far between.

He says the find is one of only three found in the UK from the time period.

Lincolnshire MPs step in over future of Louth Livestock Market

Two Lincolnshire MPs have joined the fight to protect Louth Livestock Market.

The public consultation on the future of the site closed yesterday and East Lindsey District Council has proposed three options for the site - to keep it, close it or move it.

Victoria Atkins, Conservative MP for Louth and Horncastle and Matt Warman, the Conservative MP for Boston and Skegness, have both given their views.

Ms Atkins says farming, the rural economy and the countryside are priorities for her and that the market "must stay":

It is my hope that at the meeting on 27 September, the Executive Board of East Lindsey District Council will find a way to retain the Cattle Market on the existing site while making the best use of the available space for the benefit of the wider community."

Man who 'drove at pedestrians' faces jail

Harry Parkhill

BBC Local Live, Lincolnshire

A man from Horncastle who drove his car at a group of pedestrians has been warned he faces jail.

Shane Steadman, 26, from Queen Street pleaded guilty to driving dangerously on Tattershall's High Street in July.

He also pleaded guilty to four charges of attempted grievous bodily harm with intent when he appeared at Lincoln Crown Court.

He will be sentenced later.

"Please don't come on 25 August expecting anything other than a relatively lengthy custodial sentence."

Alex Rhodes

BBC Local Live, Lincolnshire

A flood scheme to protect more than 350 homes in Louth and Horncastle will be unveiled later.

Construction on the £6.5m Louth scheme and the £8.1m Horncastle scheme started in summer 2015.

It's hoped the flood storage reservoirs will significantly reduce the threat of flooding and stop scenes like the ones above.
