Lincoln water levels increase after overcast weekend

— Last updated at 6pm

The Environment Agency is monitoring water levels in Lincoln after persistent rain across Lincolnshire.

Throughout the day, 68 flood-related incidents were attended by the Highways teams and the Environment Agency attended 26 incidents since Friday, including in Lincoln, Saxilby, Waddington, Wragby and Gainsborough.

A flood alert for Lincoln is still in place after heavy rain overnight has caused the Lincoln watercourses to rise.

This includes River Witham, Sincil Dyke, Great Gowts Drain, Fossdyke Canal, Boultham Drain and Brayford Pool.

The Environment Agency expects to see very high river levels in the Lincoln area. If you spot a potential flood risk, call the 24hr incident number on 0800807060.

The EA said: “While the River Witham in Lincoln looks high, we are carefully managing the levels to move water through the river system.”
