Skegness resident Rich Vincent has taken a walk in the dark to illustrate what it is like to be out after midnight in a street where Lincolnshire County Council has switched off the lights to save money.

Concerns for the safety of residents were raised at a meeting of Skegness Town Council last week.

Councillors heard that a petition launched to object to the street lights being switched off between midnight and 6am had already gathered hundreds of signatures.

It has been started by Coun Danny Brookes, the deputy Mayor of Skegness, demanding on behalf of residents that lights are switched back on.

Mr Vincent took a stroll down Queens Road to show what it is like and has allowed us to use his video.
