Fallen telegraph pole closes road

A fallen BT telegraph pole caused a major Boston road to be closed for most of the morning yesterday (Sunday).

The A52 Wainfleet Road near Johnsons Garden Centre was closed for five hours after the pole fell on to electric cabling at about 8.30am.

A Lincolnshire Police spokesman said BT engineers and Central Network were delayed getting to the scene and the road was closed for safety in the meantime.

It reopened at 1.30pm.
