The Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership says that 'driver error'

:00:11.:00:13.

caused by 'excessive speed' is the most probable cause

:00:14.:00:16.

for the majority of incidents, where lorries have come off the A15

:00:17.:00:19.

Last week saw two lorries come off the road in the same area,

:00:20.:00:36.

on subsequent days, and they follow many similar incidents in 2016.

:00:37.:00:39.

It's led to more questions about the suitability of the road

:00:40.:00:42.

Two lorries coming off the same stretch of the A15 one day after.

:00:43.:00:45.

On Tuesday, this lorry crashed into a ditch

:00:46.:00:48.

The day after, this lorry, came off the road, managing to stay upright,

:00:49.:00:52.

but still causing road closures and delays so the

:00:53.:00:54.

They're similar to the incidents that happened at the beginning

:00:55.:00:57.

of last year, including a two lorry smash in January, then an overturned

:00:58.:01:00.

lorry and a transporter, both coming off the road on the 25th

:01:01.:01:03.

I've spoken to six separate haulage companies to get their take on why

:01:04.:01:10.

they think this is happening and some say this carriageway

:01:11.:01:14.

Some say this carriageway simply isn't wide enough.

:01:15.:01:40.

I've had a couple of wing mirrors get knocked off by lorries that

:01:41.:01:43.

are just slightly oversized and they've felt the pulling

:01:44.:01:45.

as your pulling into the side, so they've swung back out and it

:01:46.:01:49.

If you meet another lorry, you just hope you don't clatter each other.

:01:50.:01:53.

I just feel that the road is not fit for purpose, really.

:01:54.:01:55.

We don't have these incidents further down,

:01:56.:01:57.

It is very difficult to keep the lorry nice and straight on those

:01:58.:02:02.

Only incidents causing death or serious injury are fully

:02:03.:02:08.

investigated by the Police and Lincolnshire Road Safety

:02:09.:02:10.

Partnership, so accidents like these will have little record,

:02:11.:02:13.

but police believed driver error, compounded by excessive speed

:02:14.:02:15.

If they, as hauliers, recognise that stretch of road to be

:02:16.:02:22.

dangerous at that speed, then those hauliers

:02:23.:02:26.

and drivers need to slow down to an appropriate speed and,

:02:27.:02:30.

So, it is not the road? No, there is always a part to play on the road,

:02:31.:02:48.

but we have to accept that thousands of vehicles go up and down the

:02:49.:02:52.

everyday and they all do it successfully.

:02:53.:02:53.

Lincolnshire County Council say once the assessments are complete,

:02:54.:02:55.

they will see if any structural improvements or traffic management

:02:56.:02:57.

Three baby seals that washed up on Lincolnshire's

:02:58.:03:02.

beaches are being cared for by a sanctuary in Skegness.

:03:03.:03:05.

The common seal and two grey seal pups became separated

:03:06.:03:08.

from their mothers during last week's tidal surge.

:03:09.:03:14.

Now they're being looked after until they're strong enough

:03:15.:03:16.

Looking for his next meal, Donald the Seal is one of three pups

:03:17.:03:23.

that are now being looked after at Natureland in Skegness.

:03:24.:03:34.

He's progressing well, but the two grey seals he was rescued

:03:35.:03:37.

with are still learning how to feed themselves.

:03:38.:03:39.

Now it's up to the team here to get them healthy and back to the wild.

:03:40.:03:43.

We're just adding weight to them by building up the fish

:03:44.:03:45.

When you have really poorly seals and you're

:03:46.:03:48.

thinking will they survive, sort of thing, it can

:03:49.:03:50.

be quite a harrowing experience, but, in general,

:03:51.:03:52.

Seals like this can cost them quite a lot to get them

:03:53.:03:56.

back to full health, around ?2,000 for the whole process.

:03:57.:03:59.

You'll need things like antibiotics, feeding up to five times a day,

:04:00.:04:02.

so it's a lot of care and it can take up to two months.

:04:03.:04:05.

But hopefully, when they are well enough and weight enough,

:04:06.:04:08.

they go back into the world and become healthy seals again.

:04:09.:04:10.

It's a crucial point in particularly the grey seals' lives.

:04:11.:04:13.

They're just sort of leaving the mums at this time of year.

:04:14.:04:16.

Not quite prepared for life in the big sea out there.

:04:17.:04:18.

When you get a big storms surge like that, it can be something that

:04:19.:04:22.

We think they deserve a second chance in the wild.

:04:23.:04:28.

When you find them all weak and just a bag of bones on the beach,

:04:29.:04:31.

it is very hard not to try to help, so that is what we do.

:04:32.:04:35.

Once the three seals are strong enough they'll be moved to these

:04:36.:04:38.

The centre relies on funding from visitors, so the pools are also

:04:39.:04:42.

a chance to see the seals in action before they prepare

:04:43.:04:44.

Hull City are trailing at the Premier League leaders

:04:49.:04:50.

Chelsea as the game comes to a close.

:04:51.:04:55.

Diego Costa scored in first half injury time and Gary Cayhill has

:04:56.:05:01.

Hull will remain in the relegation zone.

:05:02.:05:09.

And with the weather forecast, here's Owain Wyn Evans.

:05:10.:05:16.

A chilly night to come across East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

:05:17.:05:19.

We're going to see those temperatures dip close to freezing

:05:20.:05:21.

You can see my map is turning blue here.

:05:22.:05:25.

We'll also see some dense fog patches forming.

:05:26.:05:27.

Lows of about zero Celsius around town.

:05:28.:05:28.

Watch out for that fog tomorrow morning,

:05:29.:05:30.

However, by the time we get to the afternoon,

:05:31.:05:33.

we will see something a bit more promising with sunshine

:05:34.:05:36.

Actually, it's a fairly settled story over the next few days.

:05:37.:05:39.

We'll be back later tonight at 10.20pm with more of the day's news.

:05:40.:05:45.

of freezing fog. Already warnings in place from the Met office. I will

:05:46.:06:26.

concentrate on the fog as we go through the night. It will become

:06:27.:06:34.

quite dense late on in the night. When you have cloud cover you so

:06:35.:06:38.

much fog and that emojis .4 solo but as you saw last night potentially we

:06:39.:06:41.

could see values are a lot lower than this where the skies remain

:06:42.:06:46.

clear. Tomorrow morning could be a
