The River Witham has burst its banks in Wyndham Park, Grantham, following yesterday’s heavy rain.

Thankfully, the water level has not risen enough to flood the pathways through the park.

The wet weather has also caused flooding overnight in rural areas south of Grantham, including in Great Ponton and North Witham.
