Several trees are down after ‘Storm David’ battered South Lincolsnhire during the early hours of this morning (Thursday.)

Trees have fully or partially obstructed roads in many areas, with reports coming in to police between 4.20am and 6am.

Luckily, there are no reports of injuries.

They have come down at the A152 in Gosberton, Roman Bank and the B1356 in Spalding, West Road, the B1177 and the A15 in Bourne, the A52 in Swineshead, the A17 at Sutterton, in Quadring, Penny Hill and Morton.

Although the weather is now calm, some school buses have also been cancelled. A Lincolnshire County Council spokesman said: “ Tourmaster, Fowler’s and Cropley’s notified us they weren’t running any school bus services this morning.

“We are expecting them to be okay for the homeward journeys.”

Police have appealed for anyone with the equipment and relevant training, who could help them move trees, to call 101.

No further strong winds are expected.
