A man has been arrested in connection with a stabbing and attempted robbery in Boston.
Police were called to the Gassy Pad area, near the Sluice Bridge, shortly after 10pm on Monday night after a 46 year-old man was assaulted. The victim was treated at Boston Pilgrim Hospital for a stab injury.
A short time later, a 25 year-old man was arrested on suspicion of GBH, possession of an offensive weapon and attempted robbery. He was suffering from self-inflicted injuries and is currently receiving treatment in hospital under police guard.
Three wards have been closed at Boston Pilgrim hospital and admissions restricted to two others after an outbreak of the winter vomiting bug, norovirus.
The hospital says the closure and restrictions is a precaution to prevent further spread of the virus. They say beds will reopen as soon as patients have been discharged and the area has been symptom free for 72 hours.
Anyone planning to visit patients is asked to consider whether they have had symptoms of the virus which include vomiting, diarrhoea or flu-like symptoms in the past four days.
We usually see higher levels of norovirus in autumn and winter, and it’s really important to make sure that we protect vulnerable patients and hospital staff.
Residents in Boston have been put on flood alert .
The Environment Agency issued the alert and stated that it was expecting high tidal levels around quarter to eight this evening (Saturday February 21, 2015).
According to the Agency there could be some seepage behind flood defences causing localised pooling of water but it is only expecting this to cause minor issues - unlike the devastating floods of 2013.

The town of Boston has its roots in Medieval times, but now its looking to get a makeover to honour its historic architecture. The borough council has secured funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, which could lead to further investment of more than a million pounds.
The money will go to conserving buildings just off the Market Place and bringing back traditional shop fronts. It's hoped that new signs around the town will also make it easier for visitors to find out about Boston's past. Michael Billington reports.
Boston's been awarded two heritage lottery fund grants to help preserve architecture in the historic town and train a new generation of craftsmen. It's hoped the grants will pave the way to future funding for regeneration of more than £1million.
Councillors in Boston are set to discuss how best to take advantage of the town's new tidal barrier.
Around £11 million has been set aside for the project, but it is thought further investment could turn it into a major economic boost for the area. Parts of the town flooded during 2013's tidal surges.
