Save Lincolnshire Libraries Campaigners Win Court Battle

Posted at 8:22AM Friday 18 Jul 2014

Campaigners have won a High Court battle against cuts to council library services.

A judge ruled Lincolnshire County Council's decision to re-design its services to save £2m was legally flawed.

The legal decision is a victory for the Save Lincolnshire Libraries group and Lincoln resident Simon Draper, who led the legal challenge.
