This is the latest weather warning to hit Lincolnshire after the Met Office issued a severe weather warning for wintry showers and stretches of ice earlier this week.

Lincolnshire has already been impacted by high winds this month. Homes, businesses and a 176-year-old windmill suffered in the grip of Storm Ciara.
