  1. Flood warning

    Areas affected: River Steeping in Wainfleet All Saints

    ACTIVE

    Started at: 02:19 BST on Tue 18 June

    Flooding is expected - immediate action required

    We are continuing to work with the emergency services, military and council to respond to the ongoing flooding incident in Wainfleet in response to heavy rainfall received across the area last week. The River Steeping has breached river defences along the Wainfleet Relief channel, flooding around 130 properties. Military aid has helped stem the flow from the river. There is a command centre set up at the Fire and Rescue building in Wainfleet. It is possible that further properties could be affected. The Lincolnshire Local Resilience Forum has taken the decision to evacuate the highest risk areas and the most vulnerable in Wainfleet. River levels are falling slowly however they will remain very high for the next few days. More rainfall is forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday, which we will be closely monitoring. Please remain safe and be aware of your local surroundings. We are closely monitoring the situation and this message will be updated if the situation changes.
