In last month’s edition of Lincs Scene, serial escape artist Eddie Basil, was eventually found at West Common with the help of Lincs Scene readers. Bad news is, he’s bolted again and we need your help to locate him. Luckily, Eddie’s long suffering humans have attached a tracker to his collar, so they can find him when he goes in search of the elusive greener grass.

The directions listed below have been downloaded directly from Eddie’s tracker. Please help us locate this fugative before the dog warden catches up with him. The picture (opposite), taken together with his partner in crime, Poppy, may provide an additional clue to his whereabouts.

From West Common, Eddie was last spotted running down Yarborough Road, followed by a left turn at Carline Road towards Drury Lane. He hurtled past Lincoln Cathedral‘s windy south side onto Minster Yard and Pottergate. He was seen by locals at The Adam and Eve turning right onto Lindum Hill and then immediately left at Lindum Terrace to his final destination a hundred metres or so on the right hand side.
