A 65-year-old Skegness woman has been discovered alive at the bottom of an ancient, dried-up well on the edge of Hag Wells Wood.

Homeless Vera Tuwells had been living rough for several months, and recently found the partly hidden well which was empty - apart from an old safe which she found on the floor.

Apparently, she has been living in the well, which is cosy and quiet, and has been using money from the unlocked safe to buy blankets and food and drinks.

One of the police officers in the search party said: "When we found Vera, we asked her how she was. 'Well', she said.
'Where are you living?' we asked her. 'Well,' she said".
So that's two 'wells' for Ms Tuwells.

Skegness Social Services are threatening to re-house Ms Tuwells. But local residents just hope she keeps safe and well.
