The Environment Agency has reported Boston flood defences stood up well during last night’s high tide.

The organisation stated: “The flood defences in Boston have stood up well, and the high tide on Saturday evening has passed without incident.

“Subsequent tides on Sunday are forecast to be much lower.”

The EA had put two flood warnings in place for the town yesterday as a precautionary measure following last month’s devastating scenes. These were removed last night after the 8pm high tide.

A flood alert does remain in place - which has done so since December 5,

Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue reported they were called out to remove water from the cellar of a pub in South Square. Boston teams used two pumps.

The service said this was the only flood incident reported overnight.
