That's it for now. We're back with the late news at 10.40pm. Now

:00:00.:00:08.

Good evening. Businesses in Lincoln are criticising the city council for

:00:09.:00:13.

deciding to close traffic access to one of the city's main shopping

:00:14.:00:17.

streets next month. It's been described as a U`turn after

:00:18.:00:20.

assurances were given that a closure wouldn't be needed. An extra ?80,000

:00:21.:00:25.

is being spent on repairing Newport Arch at the top of Bailgate, as

:00:26.:00:32.

Jessica Lane reports. Weather damage and general corrosion

:00:33.:00:35.

led to urgent repairs on newport arch. This Roman gate is gateway to

:00:36.:00:39.

the city and the bailgate shopping area. Traders not happy the road

:00:40.:00:43.

underneath will be closed to traffic for up to five weeks next month.

:00:44.:00:54.

We have the road restoration two years ago and it has taken a year

:00:55.:00:58.

and a half for people to start coming back in serious numbers. It

:00:59.:01:03.

takes a long time because they start shopping elsewhere. Some only found

:01:04.:01:08.

out about the closure from a letter. It seems subtle to close an archway

:01:09.:01:13.

yet it has a very significant effect on to the wrists and people coming

:01:14.:01:19.

into the city. They will not come in this direction. People will be able

:01:20.:01:26.

to walk through but the road will be closed. Cars will have to go down

:01:27.:01:30.

Rasen Lane, along Burton Road, turn onto westgate and drive down Chapel

Lane before ending up back on bailgate the other side of the arch.

:01:34.:01:50.

When the contractors develop their plan a little farther they said

:01:51.:01:53.

there was really no alternative for the short period. It is an arch that

:01:54.:01:59.

bridge as I rode therefore is necessary to create a safe space for

:02:00.:02:03.

them to work. The city of Lincoln council is meeting traders on Monday

:02:04.:02:06.

to talk about putting up signs to say bailgate shops are staying open

:02:07.:02:10.

while the repairs are done to make sure it's business as usual for all

:02:11.:02:15.

concerned. The sister of a man whose body was

:02:16.:02:20.

left in a Hull Mortuary for 11 years says she'll be told next month

:02:21.:02:23.

whether anyone should have been prosecuted. The review is looking at

:02:24.:02:27.

the decision not to charge anyone for the mix up over Christopher

:02:28.:02:30.

Alder's body. His funeral was held in 2001, but a woman called Grace

:02:31.:02:35.

Kamara was buried in his grave. In October, the Crown Prosecution

:02:36.:02:38.

Service said no one would be prosecuted, but it's now reviewing

that. Thousands of pounds worth of hay and

:02:42.:02:45.

animal feed is on its way to the South of England after fundraising

:02:46.:02:47.

efforts by local farmers. Huge amounts of farmland have been

:02:48.:02:50.

submerged under flood water, so farmers in East Yorkshire and

:02:51.:02:53.

Lincolnshire have made donations of straw, feed and even clothing. The

latest consignment left Gainsborough this morning.

:03:10.:03:12.

in the Second Half and sealed the win with a last minute goal from

:03:13.:03:18.

defender David Mirfin. The Iron are level on points with leaders

:03:22.:03:24.

fortunes for our sides today. Grimsby Town will have to overturn a

:03:25.:03:27.

2`1 deficit if they're to get through to the Final of the FA

:03:28.:03:31.

done to attract extra fans. They are obviously very passionate

:04:01.:04:08.

about what they are doing. The excitement of a new team that is
