White water centre in Broxbourne flows for 2012


The new white water canoe centre in Broxbourne starts flowing as tests get underway for London 2012.

This unique 'mountain' style scenario has been created in Hertfordshire on one of London's flood plains.

The Lee Valley White Water Centre, being built near Waltham Cross in Hertfordshire, will host the canoe slalom events and become a sporting and leisure facility for canoeing and white-water rafting, as well as a major competition and training venue for elite events.
