The first pictures of gardens under water have been released as the Skegness area remains on Yellow flood alert.

Worse affected seem to be properties along the River Steeping, where it is understood police have been called to evacuate some residents.

It is estimated that 60ml of rain has fallen overnight, with more heavy showers to come and winds up to 45mph before the weather eases later today.
