Plans to relocate a CCTV mast in Epworth moved a step closer after North Lincolnshire Council leader Liz Redfern met local residents.

The siting of the mast in Kings Head Croft – a public green owned by Epworth Town Council and allegedly protected by the sovereign – was criticised by local people as “an eyesore in a beauty spot”.

But the problem is close to being resolved after agreement to move it closer to the middle of a nearby car park.

Epworth Town Council chairman, Don Stewart, 73, said: “It’s been suggested by North Lincs Council to move the mast next to a light overlooking the car park.”
