A local councillor has vowed to continue the fight to secure the future of Coningsby and Tattershall Library.

The library was one of several facing the axe as part of controversial cuts announced by Lincolnshire County Council.

However, the authority was forced to think again after losing a High Court battle.

Campaigners are anxiously waiting for the council to announce their revised plans for the future of libraries.

In the meantime, opening hours at Coningsby/Tattershall have been cut.

But Coningsby and Tattershall County Councillor Colin Mair (UKIP) has said he is determined to secure the long-term future of the library - whatever the authority decides.

He said: “The library is a valuable asset for this community and we don’t want to see it go.”

Coun Mair revealed more than 35 volunteers had come forward to run the library but admitted funding could be an issue - if the council pulls the plug.
