Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Service have also issued a plea for people not to call them about fallen trees unless they are causing a hazard, blocking paths or raods.

They said: “We’ve had a number of calls about fallen trees in gardens or driveways. This isn’t something emergency services can assist with. If trees are causing a hazard, blocking roads or footpaths, please call 101.”
