Fair cancelled and buildings take a hit in strong winds

Let’s hope the weather improves

The windy weather forced organisers to cancel the Lincoln funfair on the South Common tonight (Wednesday) and it also took its toll on a popular bar and some flats in Lincoln.

The high winds left the organisers with no choice, but to cancel the funfair for this evening, but there will be a discount of all rides £1 on Friday and Saturday (September 21 and 22).

As previously reported, the Met Office has placed the entire county of Lincolnshire under yellow alert for strong winds in the days to come.

A weather warning for potentially very strong winds is in place between 6pm on Thursday, September 20 and 9am on Friday, September 21.

The windy conditions tore down the signage in the popular city centre bar Trebles during the afternoon of Wednesday, September 19, but the venue will still open as normal.

Cladding was seen flying off flats on Tritton Road as passers by were walking across the road.

The Lincoln Funfair has been cancelled due to high winds. 

Yesterday, a strip of lighting flew from one of the rides, smashing into a kiosk and shocking customers.

Elsewhere in the county, Gunby Hall near Spilsby was closed on Wednesday due to the strong winds that were forecast.

The decision was made on Tuesday when the venue said on social media it expected to reopen as normal on Thursday (September 20).

There have also been alerts issued for fallen trees in the county.
