Act of God to a scene from Thunderbirds

A Sutton Bridge mum was left fuming when the county council denied blame for a tree falling on her car outside a school, describing the incident as an act of God.

Emma Robbins was nearly £500 out of pocket following the incident at Lutton St Nicholas Primary School.

* A heartbroken family wanted to know who stabbed their gentle and trusting horse, Joe, in a field at Holbeach – the veteran show horse survived the attack.

* Vandals struck days before the East Midlands in Bloom judging in Spalding, ripping apart a young tree and leaving more than six bags of empty beer cans and vodka bottles around benches on the riverbank.

* Biomass power station protesters from Sutton Bridge went to the council offices in Spalding with a petition and a coffin to highlight their fears over health risks. One placard read: “Planners ... who would promote local pollution?”

* Vandals smashed a window at The Vista, Spalding, just after notices went up about extra police powers to ban groups of two or more people gathering there or around Ayscoughfee Hall and Gardens.

* A road near Deeping St Nicholas became “a scene from Thunderbirds” after a car flew threw the air and crashed into a house.

People in Carrington Drive, Hop Pole, watched in horror as the silver Vauxhall Corsa left the A175 Littleworth Drove and smashed into the house, knocking out a huge section of a bedroom wall. Miraculously, the 26-year-old driver from Market Deeping escaped with broken ribs and a dislocated shoulder.
