Lincolnshire is at a lower risk of flooding than other parts of the country.

A recent report released by the National Audit Office used Lincolnshire as a case study and promotes the county’s flood planning and response as best practice.

It also highlights the work carried out by the county’s Flood Risk Partnership to reduce the likelihood and impact of flooding by 2025.

The full report can be found here.

Our reporter Sebastian Edgington-Cole spoke to executive councillor for environment and strategic planning Colin Davies, so click listen to get the full story as well as advice on preventing and dealing with flooding.
