Digging is under way to uncover a Roman fort in Derby


A team of archaeologists is searching for evidence of a Roman fort in Derby.

The dig, at Chester Green, will establish where the fort lies before work starts on a £35m flood defence project.

The research is being funded by the Environment Agency and Derby City Council.
