LOUTH Fire Station in Eastfield Road could be manned 24 hours a day by full time firefighters.

Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue is proposing to increase the number of fire stations open all day from two in Lincoln to nine across the county, including Louth.

They say this would mean less reliance on retained officers, who work on-call.

Dave Ramscar, chief fire officer, said: “By re-distributing our staff and changing how they operate we can increase the number of fire stations with full-time crews from two to nine.”

The consultation on the proposals closes on January 31. Visit .
