A Lincolnshire Police spokesperson said: “We appreciate with the A15 north of Lincoln and Newark Road now closed near Brant Road, traffic will be badly affected within and around Lincoln.

“We would ask that both of these areas are avoided where possible and thank the public for their patience whilst the emergency services deal with these two very serious incidents.”
