Storm latest: ‘No major problems in Lincolnshire’


East Lindsey District Council says that ‘no major problems’ have been reported in the county after forecast severe weather failed to cause the level of disruption feared.

Most of the disruption has been confined to the south of the UK, with fallen trees causing problems on some rail lines in and out of London.

However, aside from torrential rain, the gales which hampered southern counties have eased off slightly.

“We were prepared for the worst case scenario, but thankfully Lincolnshire has not experienced the problems which have been seen in the south of the UK,” said a spokesperson for the district council.

“The multi-agency approach has worked well and we will continue to monitor the situation.

“We would like to thank the public for their patience and cooperation and will continue to keep them updated and informed until the storm passes us by and moves out into the North Sea.

“The south of the county is the worst affected, but no major problems have been reported,” they added.
