Health Unions have raised concerns about a "critical" rise in demand at Lincoln and Boston hospitals

They say it's left staff unable to cope properly

They say ambulances at Boston Pilgrim have been forced to wait up to 2 hours before handing over patients.

Some patients in both hospitals are also said to have had long waits of around 20 hours in the worst cases.

The Trust in charge says there's been increased pressure over the weekend and so far this week, with a lot of very poorly patients attending A&E.
