Video: Heavy rain and melting snow causes flooding at Withern

Heavy rain and fast thawing snow has seen a huge amount of flooding in the areas around Louth.

This video shows a field underwater near Withern.

Louth’s Flood Warning, Darren Hobson, is urging people in the area to get themselves signed up to flood alerts from the Environment Agency.

This gives alerts when flooding may be a prospect in the future, and people can sign up by calling 0845 988 1188.

A number of homes in Louth had a narrow escape from flooding over the weekend as river levels rose in just hours.

Police, local authorities, L-CAT and the Environment Agency were out in force overnight on Saturday as the River Lud burst its banks.
