Empty Lincolnshire homes worth over £484m

More than 278,000 homes have sat empty across Britain for longer than six months, with 3,351 of those in Lincolnshire.

Researchers at insurance provider Admiral has combined government figures with freedom of information requests.

According to their research, the West Lindsey district has the highest proportion of long-term empty homes with 14 in every 1,000 properties.
