Several homes are without power after a car crashed into a telegraph pole in Gedney this morning.
A Renault Clio ran into a pole in Broadgate shortly before 8.10am, bringing down power lines and forcing police to close the road in both directions between its junction with Harford Gate and Station Road.
The driver from King’s Lynn was unhurt and a Western Power Distribution spokesman said that repairs were ongoing to restore power to three homes in the area.
Meanwhile, firemen were called to a blaze caused by a cooker that was accidentally switched on at a house on Albert Street, Spalding, yesterday.
The blaze broke out just after 9.40am and was put out by firemen from Spalding and Donington, but the house suffered some smoke damage.
