A fire at a house on Withington Street, Sutton Bridge, caused damage to a bedroom and its contents on Saturday.

Firemen from Holbeach and Long Sutton were called out at 10.50am and used a water hose reel to put out the fire, but not before smoke caused damage to the first floor.

Meanwhile, a man had to be cut free from his car after it left the road and crashed into a lamppost on the A15 near Market Deeping on Saturday.

It happened just before 9.50am when a Porsche Carrera ran off the town bypass, near the B1525 roundabout, and collided with the lamppost.

The road was closed for about two hours while firemen from Market Deeping and Bourne using hydraulic cutting gear freed the man who wasn’t seriously injured and the road reopened at about noon.
