Flood warnings lifted

The Environment Agency has now lifted all flood warnings for Lincolnshire

The Environment Agency has now lifted all of the flood warnings that were in place in Lincolnshire after torrential rain on Friday.

 

More than 20 roads were closed, rail services were affected and homes were flooded after almost a months worth of rain fell in some places.

A number of events this weekend have also been cancelled, including the Riverside Festival in Stamford and the race for life at the Lincolnshire showground.

A flood warning was in place in Swaton until Saturday night, but that has now been lifted.

 

An emergency team was put together on Friday to deal with any flooding incidents and they've been on standby over the weekend in Lincoln to monitor the situation.

While the clear up operation begins in Lincolnshire, it is the South West of the country that is expected to be hardest hit today.
