Mild flooding in Barkston on the A607.


Sudden mild weather and rainfall last night have caused flooding in the Grantham area.

Warnings are in place for several rivers across the county as melted snow and ice plus rainfall has caused water levels to rise. Saturated fields and roads are also struggling to cope.

Lincolnshire Police is advising motorists travelling on the A607 to drive carefully as a blocked drain in Barkston is causing mild flooding.

Meanwhile, a fire crew was called to Irnham Road in Corby Glen in the early hours of this morning, a road prone to flooding, to pump and divert water away from properties.

A section of road in Five Gates Lane is heavily flooded. Motorists are advised to take care.

Further heavy rain is expected tomorrow afternoon.
