Have your say

A tractor driver had to be rescued by firefighters after his machine ended up in the icy waters of the River Witham.

The incident was reported yesterday morning just after 9am at Witham Bank, Martin Dales.

A firecrew from Woodhall Spa laid a ladder down the riverbank so that the male driver could be brought safely back to land. He was unhurt and the tractor was recovered later.
