Strategic Command Group overseeing State of Emergency in Lincolnshire decides threat is now low https://t.co/EwSSaj8RxH
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.
These pictures show Scarborough today as the clean-up operation got underway after the tidal surge came over defences.
In Scarborough's Foreshore Road, sand, seaweed, rocks and pebbles battered the coast. On Scarborough's North Bay, waves reached a number of businesses.
