Lincolnshire hospitals A&E waits 'down to long winter'

The prolonged winter is to blame for high pressure on accident and emergency (A&E) services, according to the United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust.

People living in the county have been told to go to A&E only if it is "absolutely vital".

The chief executive of the trust, Jane Lewington, said: "We've done a lot of planning but what's caught us all out is the length of the winter."
