Hull flood protection scheme funded
A scheme protect Kingston upon Hull from tidal flooding has been given the go-ahead by the government, which has provided a £42m cash injection.
The Humber Hull Frontages project, led by the Environment Agency, will protect up to 113,000 properties in the low-lying city. It will improve defences along a 19km stretch of the Humber estuary, with new or raised defences on either side of Hull. This should accommodate for the impact of climate change.
