A £20,000 cash boost is coming from the county council to help launch South Holland’s new CCTV cameras this summer.

Around 17 cameras covering Spalding and Holbeach are expected to go live in July or August.

For the first time both towns will have 24/7 monitoring from a professional team based in Boston.

County councillors agreed on Tuesday to plough in extra cash using money collected from second homes council tax income.

Coun Nick Worth, who is steering the project, said: “I am delighted that Lincolnshire County Council are putting money into the scheme in year one to help kick-start the new CCTV and get it up and running.”

Capital costs of the scheme are a little over £100,000, but that money has already been found including grants from the Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner and the county council.
