These included street drinking which Alan feels strongly about and wants to eradicate in Lincolnshire.

He said: “I don’t think that there should be any grey areas. If you are drinking on the street then that’s wrong.”

He praised Boston and said it had had a ‘new lease of life’ since he had last visited saying he had found a ‘lively, positive atmosphere’ in the town.

Following his tour he then spoke to staff at Lincolnshire Voluntary Community Service at the Len Medlock Centre.
