Flood barrier is on its way, but be prepared in the meantime

Boston has had two flood warnings in recent months and although there was no actual flooding on either occasion the Environment Agency is making local residents aware of its flood awareness campaign.

Any flood alert, and especially those which then develop into a flood warning, create an anxious time for people living in Boston who were affected by the big flood in 2013.

Work has now  begun on the £100 million Boston Barrier flood protection project to be completed at the end of next year, but in the meantime the campaign aims to inform people about the risks of flooding and help them take action to prepare.

You can check your risk by entering your postcode at and looking at the flood map.
