The '28DL in the News' thread folder is at bursting point. Another one:

Police condemn Lincoln cathedral climbers

Police have condemned the actions of so-called "urban explorers" who claim to have climbed Lincoln cathedral.

The group has posted photos of themselves posing with statues 100ft (30m) high on the cathedral.

They claim to have made two trips to the landmark in August and said they also got inside the building.

Dick Holmes, from Lincolnshire Police, described their actions as "totally irresponsible".

The climbers have described climbing scaffolding on the building before entering the cathedral through a small door.

Mr Holmes said: "It's a stupid thing to do. If we catch them doing that they will inevitably be arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary.

"They risk injury or death and they put people at risk who may have to go up there and get them down if they fall and injure themselves."

The Dean of Lincoln, the Very Reverend Philip Buckler, said: "It is a shame that people feel they can trespass in a building like this when it is a building that's open to everyone to come and see.

"Many of the views that they had could have been achieved on one of our roof tours when we allow people to come and see these wonderful sights but with safety."

Claim? I think the pictures proves it

I usually see burglars carrying camera equipment


"Many of the views that they had could have been achieved on one of our roof tours when we allow people to come and see these wonderful sights but with safety."

That I completely disagree, the Cathedral closes at night so the public cant see night views

Bad bad Lincolnshire news!

Yes, it probably is Squirrel. The place is a ghost town after midnight.

This report is a surprise after the original statement from Lincolnshire Police spokesman James Newall in the Lincolnite article (still the most popular story on their website):

''Lincolnshire Police spokesman James Newall told The Lincolnite: “We have not received a complaint about this issue and as there does not appear to be any criminal intent, this is more likely to be a case of civil trespass and not a police matter.''

I presume the guide is happy to stop late to get those excellent long exposure images once the sun's gone down?
