Louth water level highest since 2007
WATER levels on Sunday were at the highest in Louth seen since the 2007 floods.
The thawing of snow combined with rain saw flooding reports across East Lindsey.
In Louth, the town's volunteer flood warden, Darren Hobson, was at the scene of the River Lud from 1am Sunday morning.
He said: "It was certainly the highest it's been since 2007 but luckily no properties were flooded. The water levels have now dropped down to a more normal level.

"There was some confusion with residents saying they had not been warned about the flood alert.
"At 1am on Sunday morning, there was a flood warning for the River Lud specifically as a particular watercourse.
"The Environment agency then issued a Flood Alert, which is a lower level, which covered a much wider area including Louth Canal as it flowed out towards Louth.
"I would advise anyone concerned about flooding to sign up for flood warnings."
Darren was also providing live updates from the scene through his Facebook page.
Ten members of the Lincolnshire Community Assistant team volunteered with eight of their 4x4 vehicles to deliver sandbags to people living in the vicinity of Louth Canal.
There was also flooding in Hubbards Hills and parts of the A16 near Utterby were flooded.
