Burgh Le Marsh windmill

Here is our latest statement on the Burgh Le Marsh windmill after Storm Ciara.

Cllr Nick Worth, executive member for heritage at Lincolnshire County Council, said: "I am shocked and saddened to see what has happened to the mill. It is such an important local landmark and we know how devastating this must be for the community.

"We believe just due to the sheer strength of the wind – the sails, cap and an outbuilding were damaged.

"We've had teams at the mill yesterday and this morning, trying to see what had happened. For us, at this stage, its important to take time to make a careful assessment of the damage with specialists and consider the next steps."
