She says they show water pouring down Osborne Way form the construction site for new homes on Langton Hill.

Ms Ivett said: “We have tried to get help from Highways and East Lindsey Planning this morning and East Lindsey are monitoring the situation and have informed their emergency team.

“My driveway slopes down from the pavement.

“Thankfully, the rain is slowing up and we may be alright.”
