Flood defence scheme now finished
Engineering work on a flood defence scheme in part of Nottingham has been completed by the Environment Agency.

The work, costing 750,000, started in July and targeted 150m of the flood defence wall between the Beeston Canal and the River Trent.

Officials said it will protect more than 2,000 homes and businesses in Beeston and parts of the city centre.

The scheme was introduced after the floods five years ago highlighted potential problems.

The Environment Agency said public art would be put along the wall's canal side next year to make it more attractive.

Work will also be carried out to cut-back vegetation along the towpath and new plants will be added.
