A councillor has branded the pedestrianised centre of Spalding as a 'failed experiment' after a driver ignored the one-way system and road closure.

South Holland district councillor Roger Gambba-Jones is hoping that CCTV has captured a black car driving from New Road up Hall Place and Market Place earlier today.

Calls have been growing for action to be taken to stop drivers ignoring the rules by accessing the town centre during the day time.

However this latest issue going one step further by going the wrong way up the street and meeting a van at the other end.

Coun Gambba-Jones said: "Go and tie your horse to any bit of street furniture as the sheriff has left town.

"We are failing the public. We are failing them on the enforcement front and confronting the issue so, Lincolnshire County Council come and remove your useless pedestrianisation zone.

"It hasn't worked in Spalding, it is a failed experiment."

Lincolnshire County Council's Highways says it is looking at ways to reinforce the message to drivers and that it would support the police in enforcing the restrictions.
