POLICE WARNING: dangerous driving conditions

THE Market Rasen area has again been hit by heavy rainfall leading to dangerous driving conditions.

Deep surface water and minor flooding has affected Gainsborough Road in Middle Rasen, Tealby Road, Market Rasen and Bully Hill top, Tealby.

Other minor roads have also been affected.

Police are warning motorists to be aware of the fact they could drive round a bend and be faced with deep standing water.

“Please drive according to the conditions, which generally means travelling slower and allowing more time for any journey,” said a police spokesman.

Dipped headlights should also be used.

Further heavy downpours are expected this evening, particularly in the north of the county.

Anyone wishing to report hazards on the roads should call Lincolnshire Police on the non-emergency 101 number or via the emergency 999 number if they feel the circumstances are serious or dangerous.
