A couple were sat in their car outside Cogglesford Watermill in Sleaford (pictured) on Wednesday when a man demanded money off them and escaped with a small amount of cash.

A 31-year-old local man has since been arrested on suspicion of robbery and is currently being interviewed, police say.

Officers are appealing for people who were in the area at the time and may have seen what happened to get in touch.

Could boundary changes affect Lincoln Tory challenge?

Harry Parkhill

BBC Local Live, Lincolnshire

Changes to the constituency boundaries in Lincoln could affect the likelihood of a Conservative MP for city.

This is despite the Labour Party saying that the proposed changes are for the government to pursue "their own political advantage rather than what is in the best interest of the country".

Our political reporter has been analysing the border changes:

These proposals are designed to even out the number of voters in each seat. Sleaford and North Hykeham would swap pockets of their communities, the Lincoln seat would lose Bracebridge Heath and Waddington but gain North Hykeham and parts of South Hykeham. In theory this could mean the loss of Conservative voters in Lincoln, which is a marginal seat.

Planned parliamentary boundaries to affect Lincolnshire

Sharon Edwards

Political Reporter, BBC Radio Lincolnshire

Revised changes to parliamentary boundaries could affect who you vote for in the next general election if they're approved.

The government wants to cut the number of MPs in the House of Commons.

Currently the constituency boundaries look like this:

old boundaries
Boundary Commission for England

New borders could mean that people living in Heckington will vote for the Boston and Skegness MP, not the Sleaford and North Hykeham MP.

It would also mean people in Waddington would no longer vote for Lincoln's MP whilst people in parts of South Hykeham now would.

The proposed changes are pictured below in light blue:

The changes would have to be approved by parliament which some commentators say is unlikely.

The Labour Party says the proposed changes are for the government to pursue "their own political advantage rather than what is in the best interest of the country".
