Lincolnshire flood warnings still in place for River Welland, River Glen, South Forty Foot Drain, River Trent and River Witham

More than 20 flood warnings remain in place for Lincolnshire as the county faces up to the fourth day of combatting high water levels.

Storm Henk has left homes, farmland and roads suffering the impact of floods at the start of 2024 – with the river bursting its banks at Crowland as the river handles its highest volumes of water since the infamous floods of 1947.

This morning 24 flood warnings are still in place in the county – including for the River Glen at Greatford and Kate’s Bridge and the River Welland at Stamford, Market Deeping and Deeping St James and the South Forty Foot Drain near Donington and Horbling Fen.
