Lincolnshire Police is supporting the investigation being carried out by our colleagues.

Although we are unable to comment on any aspect of ongoing investigations, we realise the events of the last couple of days will have had a significant impact on people living in Lincolnshire.

We would urge people to be calm and measured in their response to recent events.

We would like to thank the public, in particular the residents of Saxilby for their patience, co-operation and support throughout the day.

Anyone living in the area that has any concerns should approach one of the many officers patrolling the streets over the next couple of days.

Very careful consideration has been given to policing and resources in response to this incident and there are a significant amount of officers patrolling our community.
