This week’s Lancaster Guardian is now on the shelves, and is once again packed full of news, entertainment and sport.

This week’s lead story looks at how Town Hall chiefs paid out £38,250 in three years to settle insurance claims, many of which were described as ‘frivolous’.

Town Hall chiefs have also distanced themselves from proposals to sell off more than 100 council houses to help build more cheap homes in the district.

You can also read about how narrowboat owners moored at Galgate Marina may have to pay council tax, as well as rail company First Group describing fears that Lancaster will miss out of train services after they were awarded the contract for the Western Mainline as “completely inaccurate”.

In sport, Lancaster City caretaker boss Mick Hoyle has said he would like to bring in two more players this week, despite the team’s victory in the FA Cup reply against Ashton Athletic.
