Severe weather on Lincolnshire's East Coast low

The Strategic Command Group convened to oversee the State of Emergency in Lincolnshire, which was declared on Wednesday (11th January), have decided that the threat is now low and have made the decision that all agencies can return to business as usual.

Neil Rhodes, chief constable of Lincolnshire Police and chair of the Lincolnshire Resilience forum, said:

The Lincolnshire Resilience Forum has tonight (13 January) taken the decision to close the 24-hour emergency control centre. We have today seen the tidal surge.

It was massively reassuring to have support from the military.
