Burton Road lockdown skeleton holds up quirky messages for Lincoln

Well that’s a bit different!

A skeleton in a white coat has been spotted displaying uplifting, humorous and positive messages in the window of a house in the Burton Road area of Lincoln.

Hilary Tunmore told The Lincolnite she looks out for Bert’s messages on Mill Road when she does her one permitted form of daily exercise during the coronavirus lockdown.

She said the messages change every day as Bert is seen with different props.

The messages included birthday wishes for the queen, a desire to apply for MasterChef, a hello to his neighbours and a mirrored sign.
