Police shut road and air ambulance attends after ‘person hit by train’ – Lincolnshire Live
Lincolnshire Police closed a road in Grantham after an incident between Grantham and Newark Northgate.
Two reports on social media said that a person had been hit by a train, although this has not been confirmed.
One video shows the air ambulance taking off from a field at the time of the incident.
According to Lincolnshire Police, the incident took place at 5.45pm on Sunday on June 23, on Belton Lane in Great Gonerby at the junction with Manthorpe Road.
At the time, police warned motorists to avoid the area.
The road reopened at 8.30pm. It is understood this caused significant tailbacks.
Twitter user Double D posted at the time to say: “I would avoid the town centre – head for Grantham but turn right up Belton Lane towards Great Gonerby. At the end turn right towards the A1.
“Head south on A1 and turn off at the A607 turning. At roundabout turn left pass the police station. Next roundabout turn left then right.”
Police have not yet said what the nature of the incident is.
Lincolnshire Live asked Lincolnshire Police for a statement – an update will be provided when they respond.
