Good afternoon. Businesses in Lincoln are
criticising the city council for announcing the Newport Arch at the
top of Bailgate will have to be closed to traffic next month. It's
been described as a U`turn, after assurances were given that a closure
wouldn't be needed. An extra ?80,000 is being spent on repairing the
Roman gate. Jessica Lane reports. It was only when this letter came to
his shop on Lincoln's Bailgate that Barry realised Newport Arch will be
closed next month, for up to five weeks. He understands the repairs
need to be made, but says it should be done with minimum impact to
traders. It seems very subtle to close an
archway because there are other roots in. It has a significant
effect on people coming into the city. If they see it closed, they
won't come in. People will still be able to walk through but the road
will be closed to traffic. This means that drivers will have to take
a different route. Cars will have to go down Rasen Lane. Along Burton
Road. Turn onto West Gate. And drive down Chapel Lane, before ending up
back on Bailgate the other side of the arch.
When the project plan was developed further, they said there was no
alternative for this short period. It is an arch and it is Mr Derry to
create a safe space for them to work.
The City of Lincoln Council says it will try to meet shop owners on
Monday, to talk about putting up signs to say Bailgate shops are
staying open, to make sure it's business as usual for all concerned.
The sister of a man whose body was left in a Hull mortuary for 11 years
says she'll be told next month whether anyone should have been
prosecuted. The review is looking at the decision not to charge anyone
for the mix`up over Christopher Alder's body. His funeral was held
in 2001, but a woman called Grace Kamara was buried in his grave. In
October, the Crown Prosecution Service said no`one would be
prosecuted, but it's now reviewing that.
In Rugby League, Hull FC won their first game of the season last night,
at home to the Catalan Dragons. The Black and Whites scored eight tries
in their 36`34 win at the KC Stadium, but had to hold on, after
conceding three late tries. Scunthorpe United improved their
promotion chances, after coming from behind to win at Accrington last
night. The Iron trailed 2`0 at half`time to their Lancashire
rivals, but fought back in the second ,half and sealed the win with
a last`minute goal from defender David Mirfin. The Iron are level on
points with leaders Chesterfield. Grimsby Town face a vital Cup game
this afternoon. They meet Cambridge United in the first leg of their FA
Trophy semifinal. The two sides meet again next weekend, with the winner
going to Wembley. Lincoln City are also in action, as they face
Kidderminster in the Conference Premier at Sincil Bank.
Here's the weekend's weather. Good afternoon. A fairly wet and
windy afternoon at times. Plenty of showers, some on the heavy side.
Later in the day, they will fizzle out, temperatures up to around eight
Celsius. This evening, the showers will die out and we will have a dry
night with clear spells and a touch of frost, temperatures back to two
Celsius. Tomorrow is bright and sunny.
