Dave Chetwynd, principal engineer at Lincolnshire County Council said: “Due to lorry drivers driving over the footpath, some repair work needs to be made to the damaged kerbs and paving slabs.

“The contractor will also be taking measures to ensure that recurrence of the problem is reduced.

“We will do our best to reduce disruption to the public and motorists and we thank them for their patience and cooperation during this time.”
