We have seen heavy rainfall in the North Kesteven area over the past 36 hours. This means that the River Witham is rising, leading to continued flooding of low lying land and roads close to the river from today onwards. We expect the river to remain high throughout today, Wednesday 20 January. We are expecting further rainfall in the North Kesteven area today. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. We are constantly monitoring river levels, and have staff in the field checking for blockages and clearing weedscreens. This message will be updated on Thursday 21 January, or as the situation changes
