Amber flood alert at Bourne

Have your say

An amber flood alert is in place in Bourne after yesterday’s heavy rainfall.

Between 20mm and 40mm of rain fell causing tributaries to rise and a flood warning across the area.

At one point the A15 at Northorpe, near Bourne, was nearly closed by Lincolnshire highways authority because of surface water.

But a spokesman said it was passable with care and remained open.

The alert remains in place due to more rain being expected this afternoon.
