River de-silting scheme planned for Gloucestershire

Related Stories

Rivers in Gloucestershire are to be de-silted and blockages fixed to prevent future flooding.

The Environment Agency is to work with Gloucestershire County Council in order to target problem areas such as inadequate culverts.

Experts will also study the behaviour of floodwater on the River Severn and its floodplain between Tewkesbury and Gloucester.

The local authority has invested £48m in flood prevention schemes since 2007.
