caused by 'excessive speed' is the most probable cause
for the majority of incidents, where lorries have come off the A15
Last week saw two lorries come off the road in the same area,
on subsequent days, and they follow many similar incidents in 2016.
It's led to more questions about the suitability of the road
Two lorries coming off the same stretch of the A15 one day after.
On Tuesday, this lorry crashed into a ditch
The day after, this lorry, came off the road, managing to stay upright,
but still causing road closures and delays so the
They're similar to the incidents that happened at the beginning
of last year, including a two lorry smash in January, then an overturned
lorry and a transporter, both coming off the road on the 25th
I've spoken to six separate haulage companies to get their take on why
they think this is happening and some say this carriageway
Some say this carriageway simply isn't wide enough.
I've had a couple of wing mirrors get knocked off by lorries that
are just slightly oversized and they've felt the pulling

If you meet another lorry, you just hope you don't clatter each other.
I just feel that the road is not fit for purpose, really.
We don't have these incidents further down,
It is very difficult to keep the lorry nice and straight on those
Only incidents causing death or serious injury are fully
investigated by the Police and Lincolnshire Road Safety
Partnership, so accidents like these will have little record,
but police believed driver error, compounded by excessive speed
If they, as hauliers, recognise that stretch of road to be
dangerous at that speed, then those hauliers
and drivers need to slow down to an appropriate speed and,
So, it is not the road? No, there is always a part to play on the road,
but we have to accept that thousands of vehicles go up and down the
everyday and they all do it successfully.

Three baby seals that washed up on Lincolnshire's

The common seal and two grey seal pups became separated
from their mothers during last week's tidal surge.
Now they're being looked after until they're strong enough
Looking for his next meal, Donald the Seal is one of three pups
that are now being looked after at Natureland in Skegness.
He's progressing well, but the two grey seals he was rescued
with are still learning how to feed themselves.
Now it's up to the team here to get them healthy and back to the wild.
We're just adding weight to them by building up the fish
When you have really poorly seals and you're
thinking will they survive, sort of thing, it can
be quite a harrowing experience, but, in general,
Seals like this can cost them quite a lot to get them
back to full health, around ?2,000 for the whole process.
You'll need things like antibiotics, feeding up to five times a day,
so it's a lot of care and it can take up to two months.
But hopefully, when they are well enough and weight enough,
they go back into the world and become healthy seals again.
It's a crucial point in particularly the grey seals' lives.
They're just sort of leaving the mums at this time of year.
Not quite prepared for life in the big sea out there.
When you get a big storms surge like that, it can be something that
We think they deserve a second chance in the wild.
When you find them all weak and just a bag of bones on the beach,
it is very hard not to try to help, so that is what we do.
