Two tickets have been issued to cyclists using the pavements alongside shops in Skegness town centre,

The action yesterday comes with a warning from Skegness Police that anti-social behaviour like this will not be tolerated.

T/Insp Matt Bennision tweeted: “Two tickets for cycling on the pavement on Lumley Road given out this morning.

“This is a busy pedestrian street with people emerging from shop doorways and cycling along the pavement presents a danger to cyclists and pedestrians.”
