Refurbishment of Brigg police station is coming along nicely.
And that means Insp Brett Rutty and his officers will soon be able to leave their temporary accommodation on the Barnard Avenue site.
Humberside Police project manager Michael Ellis said: "The scheme at Brigg is proceeding according to our plan.
"We hope to have the building completed and ready for occupation prior to Christmas.
"The £640,000 scheme consists of extensive remodelling and refurbishment, together with all new mechanical and electrical fittings.
"The initial phase of work involved the removal of all asbestos material.
"The remodelled station will be ideally configured for the operational staff based there.
"The public enquiry counter is being retained and improved.
"Additional secure car parking is being provided on land owned to the side of the station.”
Brigg police moved into the then brand new station in the late 1970s, having earlier been housed in the Victorian courthouse complex, on Wrawby Street.
