Flood alert in place for Surfleet, Pinchbeck, Baston and Tongue End areas

A flood alert has been issued for parts of South Holland.

The Environment Agency has issued the alert for the Lower Glen and Bourne Eau system, which covers Surfleet, Pinchbeck, Baston, Tongue End and Twenty.

The alert states: "Over the last 24 hours we have seen heavy rainfall in the River Glen area. This means that the River Glen is now rising, which will lead to flooding of low lying land and roads close to the river from this morning (Sunday, February 7) onwards.

"We expect the river to remain high throughout the next few days. Our forecasts indicate that flooding to properties is not likely and therefore flood warnings are not expected to be issued for the Greatford and Kates Bridge area.

"We are constantly monitoring river levels, and have staff in the field checking for blockages and clearing weedscreens. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded."
