A facility that simulates sea conditions has opened in Oxfordshire.

The Fast Flow Facility, at civil engineering firm HR Wallingford, is 75 metres long, eight metres wide and can hold a million litres of water to generate metre-high waves.

It has been built to help engineers improve the design of sea structures such as oil rigs and wind-turbines.
