A Market Rasen woman was arrested on suspicion of drink driving after her car was in collision with two cars 
in Binbrook on Saturday evening.

The incident also saw extensive damage to village’s market place centrepiece.

Police were called to the incident at around 6.30pm on Saturday, March 22.

It was reported a Volkswagen Golf, driven by the Market Rasen woman, collided with two parked vehicles, a Citroen Berlingo and a Vauxhall Vectra.

The driver of the Volkswagen was taken to Grimsby Hospital for treatment, but is not thought to have been seriously injured.

Nobody else was injured in the incident.

The market place centre was renovated in 1997, when 
the surface was paved, the pump and surrounds restored and a new lamp standard installed.

Five of the eight decorative metal bollards in the centre were damaged or destroyed in the incident and half the stone lamp base, preserved from the old market place, was displaced; the light is now out of action.

The market place is a popular meeting spot for young people most evenings, but on this occasion they were at a fundraising event in the village hall.
