Bizarre crimes captured on CCTV
CCTV cameras in East Lindsey's public place detect more than just fights and drunkenness outside pubs and clubs it has been revealed.
A report to the district council found many other misdemeanours in Louth, Mablethorpe and Skegness.
In one incident, a man was recorded urinating on the keypad of the cash machine outside the NatWest bank in Skegness and in another a man was captured as he was about to throw a brick following a disturbance at The Miller's Daughter pub in Louth.
There was also an incident in which two men were taking "wish" money out of the Jolly Fisherman fountain in Skegness.
Following an upbeat scrutiny panel assessment of the value of CCTV in revealing crime, it is likely that East Lindsey District Council will continue to provide funding even though it is not a statutory requirement of local authorities.
The council hopes that funding support will also continue to be forthcoming from the various town and parish councils served by the cameras, namely those in Alford, Chapel St Leonards, Horncastle, Mablethorpe and Skegness.
