    The photo doesn't match the headline, unless Wilsford Back Lane has suddenly become a busy built-up metropolis. It looks more like the junction between Lindum Road, Monks Road and Silver Street in Lincoln.

    According to Lincs FM traffic news Newark Road is now blocked at the Hykeham Road junction by a fallen tree. Well done to the farmer. I hope he gets the thanks he deserves. More people like him would keep this country moving much better in bad conditions!

    I'm surprise the farmer wasn't arrested for breaking the 'Elf n Safety' rules. They don't like common sense unlike the official 'Heath and Safety' lot.
