Flooding across Stamford, Bourne, Grantham and Rutland area as yellow weather warning for rain remains in place





Drivers are facing disruption as roads across the area flood.

A yellow warning for rain, issued by the Met Office, is in place for much of the area until 6pm today (Thursday, February 22).

After a steady downpour throughout the day, flooding on roads is making journey times longer for drivers.

In Sedgebrook, near Grantham, Village Street is closed both ways from Allington Road to Abbey Lane due to flooding. A resident had previously hit out that it is ‘constantly under water’.

A number of roads are partially covered by water. These include:

Main Road, Dyke

Wansford Road, Elton

Main Street, Whissendine

Some roads are also affected by water running off nearby flooded fields.

The Met Office has warned there is a small chance that some communities will become cut off by flooded roads and flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions with some closures.

The rain is forecast to stop at 6pm and after that dry conditions are expected.
