Firefighters help those affected by flooding at Surfleet

Fire crews helped pump water out of gardens last night (Friday) as the River Glen burst its banks at Surfleet Reservoir.

The Environment Agency had yesterday put a flood warning ‘expecting’ flooding in the area around high tide.

Another warning was put out for this morning following the rain that’s fallen in the last 48 hours.

Last night at shortly after 8pm fire crews from Spalding, Donington, Crowland, Kirton and Billinghay attended Surfleet Reservoir.

A Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue spokesman said: “Crews used two light portable pumps to remove flood water from some gardens.”

The high water levels of the River Glen yesterday were captured on camera at West Pinchbeck by Lincolnshire Drones.
