'Eyesore' boards finally removed from Skegness railway station
WOODEN boxes which have been covering up sculptures at Skegness railway station have finally been removed.
The ‘dune’ sculptures were covered over in March 2012, just weeks after being unveiled, after a teenage boy, riding his bike on the double-backed structures, fell off and needed hospital treatment.
Local residents have branded the boards an 'eyesore' and called for their removal several times in the last 18 months.
But at the weekend the boards were taken away and have been replaced with fencing to enable contractors to take measurements at the site.

A spokesman for Lincolnshire County Council says the fences are likely to be in place for ‘a couple of weeks’ and ‘minor changes’ could be made in November.
The changes are set to include things like studs to deter people carrying out activities such as skateboarding around the structures.
A new Jolly Fisherman statue is also set to be installed at the station plaza in the coming weeks.
