BRIGG BLOG REFLECTS ON FEBRUARY 2020 BEING CONFIRMED AS THE WETTEST ON RECORD

Brigg has seen River Ancholme levels rise considerably on a couple of occasions recently, with some bank-topping near the Ancholme Way A18 flyover, a few trees and fences have been toppled by high winds, with some sports events cancelled.
But compared with many other communities across the UK we haven't suffered too badly.
