A warning was put in place earlier in the day for Louth Canal from Louth to Tetney Lock, the Waithe Beck from Binbrook to Tetney Lock and their tributaries, including the River Lud in Louth.

This came after heavy rain overnight and the fast thawing snow due to the higher temperatures.

There are no more warnings but a flood alert remains for Louth Canal and Waithe Beck.

Update - 11am - Locals are being told to beware today as a flood warning has gone out for the local area.

Lincolnshire Police received reports of flooding in the early hours of this morning (Sunday) and have been in attendance at various locations.

Areas that have been affected are, Louth Canal from Louth to Tetney Lock, the Waithe Beck from Binbrook to Tetney Lock and their tributaries, including the River Lud in Louth.

Tributaries may also affect Utterby and Covenham St Mary.

Police have been advising motorists to take care when approaching local areas that have been subjected to flooding, due to the overnight rain and snow melting.

We will update this incident further, when we know more news.
