The trio demanded answers to why the roadworks have over-run - and why they were not informed about the works until three days before the start date.

Coun Davies apologised for the “rubbish” communication from Lincolnshire County Council, while Mr Boles said it was unacceptable for utility companies to take so long to resolve problems which have impacted on the town so heavily.
