Environment Agency lift flood alert on Louth Canal

The flood alert on Louth Canal has been lifted by the Environment Agency.

The alert had been issued 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, after persistent rain.

A flood alert is the first warning to be issued by the Environment Agency, meaning flooding is possible.

If the situation gets worse it is followed by a flood warning and a severe flood warning.
