This exclusive picture of workmen scaling St Botolph’s footbridge to clean it was taken by one of the first group of six to scale the outside of Boston Stump.

Boston Borough Council communications apprentice Jasmine Lilley used her day off to climb 24-storeys of scaffolding on the outside of the Stump, and took the opportunity to glance down and take this picture of the footbridge cleaning team.

The footbridge was closed from Monday to Wednesday morning, and is open again now after its spring clean.
