The Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership says that "driver error"

:00:09.:00:12.

caused by "excessive speed" is the most probable cause

:00:13.: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.:00:25.

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

:00:26.:00:29.

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

:00:30.:00:33.

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

:00:34.:00:42.

On Tuesday, this lorry crashed into a ditch

:00:43.:00:44.

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

:00:45.:00:58.

but still causing road closures and delays so the

:00:59.:01:01.

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

:01:02.:01:04.

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

:01:05.:01:07.

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

:01:08.:01:10.

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

:01:11.:01:14.

they think this is happening on this stretch of road.

:01:15.:01:16.

Some say this carriageway simply isn't wide enough.

:01:17.:01:18.

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

:01:19.:01:22.

are just slightly oversized and they've felt the pulling

:01:23.:01:27.

as you pull into the side, so they've swung back out and it

:01:28.:01:30.

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

:01:31.:01:35.

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

:01:36.:01:38.

We don't have these incidents further down,

:01:39.:01:39.

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

:01:40.:01:44.

Only incidents causing death or serious injury are fully

:01:45.:01:48.

investigated by the Police and Lincolnshire Road Safety

:01:49.:01:50.

Partnership, so accidents like these will have little record,

:01:51.:01:54.

but police believe driver error, compounded by excessive speed

:01:55.:01:58.

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

:01:59.:02:03.

dangerous at that speed, then those hauliers

:02:04.:02:07.

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

:02:08.:02:10.

Lincolnshire County Council say once the assessments are complete,

:02:11.:02:17.

they will see if any structural improvements or traffic management

:02:18.:02:20.

The Northern Powerhouse Minister Andrew Percy has called on people

:02:21.:02:28.

to get behind the new US President Donald Trump.

:02:29.:02:31.

Mr Trump has been criticised by some politicians in East Yorkshire

:02:32.:02:35.

and Lincolnshire over the language he's used towards women

:02:36.:02:37.

But Andrew Percy, who represents Brigg and Goole, says he can

:02:38.:02:42.

understand why many Americans voted for President Trump.

:02:43.:02:49.

Actually scrape beneath the surface of some the things he's been saying

:02:50.:02:52.

and why and you do get to see, just as in here, actually,

:02:53.:02:55.

that there's a great divide and a lot of people

:02:56.:02:57.

and they have legitimate concerns, those people who voted for Trump

:02:58.:03:01.

-- and we shouldn't poo-poo them just because we happen to think

:03:02.:03:25.

Hull City's Ryan Mason has been taken to hospital after suffering

:03:26.:03:27.

a head injury in today's game against Chelsea.

:03:28.:03:29.

He was carried off on a stretcher wearing an oxygen mask

:03:30.:03:32.

after receiving eight minutes of treatment.

:03:33.:03:33.

Diego Costa scored the first for the Premier League leaders.

:03:34.:03:37.

Then with around ten minutes to go, Gary Cahill sealed the win.

:03:38.:03:39.

It means Hull City remain in the relegation zone.

:03:40.:03:42.

Three baby seals that washed up on Lincolnshire's

:03:43.:03:44.

beaches are being cared for by a sanctuary in Skegness.

:03:45.:03:46.

The common seal and two grey seal pups became separated

:03:47.:03:48.

from their mothers during last week's tidal surge.

:03:49.:03:50.

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

:03:51.:03:52.

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

:03:53.:03:56.

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

:03:57.:03:59.

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

:04:00.:04:02.

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

:04:03.:04:05.

We think they deserve a second chance in the wild.

:04:06.:04:09.

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

:04:10.:04:13.

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

:04:14.:04:16.

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

:04:17.:04:18.

It's going to be a cold night yet again across

:04:19.:04:22.

Those temperatures dipping close to freezing if not below freezing.

:04:23.:04:25.

It will be largely dry, maybe just the odd spot of drizzle

:04:26.:04:28.

across parts of Lincolnshire and I think one thing we have

:04:29.:04:30.

to look out for tomorrow morning are some pretty dense

:04:31.:04:33.

We'll see some frost as well, so slippery surfaces are possible.

:04:34.:04:37.

However, look at the afternoon, it's looking a lot better.

:04:38.:04:40.

Highs of 5 or 6 Celsius, so it's going to be a cold one.

:04:41.:04:43.

A settled story over the next few days.

:04:44.:04:48.

We'll be back in Breakfast tomorrow morning from 6.25am.

:04:49.:04:52.

Until then, have a very good evening.

:04:53.:04:53.

Good evening. If you are dreading the trudge back to work in the

:04:54.:05:13.

morning I'm not going to help matters. There is the prospect of

:05:14.:05:18.

nasty, freezing fog over the next couple of days. Quite localised but

:05:19.:05:23.

tricky out there on the roads. Disruption possible. Check out your

:05:24.:05:28.

BBC local radio station, go online for the latest updates where you

:05:29.:05:35.

are. The fog thickening up as I subpoenaing, particularly across

:05:36.:05:38.

southern parts of the UK. There are warnings in force with some patches

:05:39.:05:43.

of fog elsewhere, too. A cold one, needless to say. Some places already
