Flood wall defence work continues
A new flood wall is being built to protect houses alongside the River Lune in Lancaster.

The latest phase of the work by the Environment Agency on St George's Quay will be about 450m long and 1.40m high along the south bank of the river.

The total cost of the Lancashire project is about 11m and will also see the quayside footpath widened and the Slave Memorial raised.

There may be some temporary disruption for local residents and traffic.
