Steps are being made to send home a man in connection with complaints about begging for cash in Spalding town centre.

Police have confimed that a man found by them in the town on Thursday has been referred to a Lincolnshire charity in the hope it can help him return to Latvia after several years spent living in Spalding.

Members of The Crescent Traders Association gave out several warnings to shopkeepers and other businesses about a man they claimed was going into shops over recent weeks and asking for cash.

Spalding community policing inspector Jim Tyner said: “We found the man last night and we’ve put a request in to a charity that can help him return to his home country of Latvia.

“We’re hopeful that they will get in touch with him and help return home in due course.”
