In pictures: Lincoln’s sandy beach returns

Summer sand: The weather blessed Lincoln’s annual sandy beach, with a very warm opening day.

Today so the return of Lincoln by the Sea, an event which sees tonnes of Skegness sand delivered the the city centre.

As well as a giant sand pit, children can also play on amusements or watch Punch and Judy shows while parents recline on deck chairs.

The beach will remain in City Square (by Wilkinsons) until September 1, so plenty of time for children to go and make sandcastles!
