Ladbrokes betting shop to open in Lincoln High Street
A betting shop is set to open in the former premises of a Lincoln High Street bank.
Ladbrokes will open in place of Santander at number 326 in a unit next to the level crossing.
Agents for the property Hodgson Elkington have also confirmed Morning Sun, an oriental food shop, has opened nearby at number 341a.
Matthew Johnson, a spokesman for Hodgson Elkington, said: "The 326 High Street property generated a lot of interest and it is pleasing we managed to secure another nationally recognised tenant for the property.
"The letting of 341a High Street to a new start business indicates that at both ends of the business cycle, be it established national companies or new start businesses, Lincoln provides opportunities for both.
"Additionally, with the proposed East-West Link Road gathering pace, it has and will provide further confidence in the lower High Street, with the additional pedestrianisation of the area, it will only enhance the location."
