Police cordon at smashed up Lincoln railway station

Vandals caused “structural damage”

Police closed off the main entrance to Lincoln Central  railway station on Friday morning after a vandal “caused structural damage.”

Commuters spotted officers this morning investigating the scene and cordoning off some of the ticket barriers.

Staff at the station told The Lincolnite that they are unsure when the main entrance will be able to reopen, but other entrances are available and trains are running as normal.

They have since passed the matter onto British Transport Police.

A spokesperson for BTP said: “Officers received a report of a burglary at Lincoln Central railway station.

“A door and a cash machine are reported to have been damaged. Enquiries into the incident are ongoing.”
