Flooding in Boston caused homes, businesses and streets to be evacuated due to the worst tidal surge in 60 years.

Around 250 people were evacuated from their homes last night in Boston.

A number of schools have been closed in the town after the news of the flood, including Boston Grammar School, Boston High School, Pioneer Free School and John Fielding School.

Boston College was also closed.

Members of the public were urged not to travel until after 10am this morning so damage could be assessed after the high tide at 8am this morning.

As the flood water begins to recede, the clean-up begins in the town.

Videos shared online captured the dramatic events as they unfolded.
