EVERYONE'S A WINNER
Humberside Police’s decision to revamp Brigg police station, rather than build a new one, has meant an unexpected bonus for motorists visiting the centre of town.
For this small area of unused land on Cary Lane (pictured) might have disappeared if the extensive scheme had gone ahead, meaning the loss of 12 free car parking spaces, plus the nice, mature tree.
These coveted parking spaces are soon snapped up by motorists ‘in the know’ as this picture shows. It avoids them having to pay North Lincolnshire Council while making a short trip to the shops.
Yesterday, by kind permission of Humberside Police, the Scunthorpe Telegraph and www.thisisbrigg.co.uk was given a sneak preview of the inside of the new station, due to open to the public next Monday.
Alex Heaton, enquiry office clerk, went behind the glass screen as we became the first members of the public to push the button for service.
