Work continues on York's £3.2m flood defences

Work is continuing on a £3.2m flood defence scheme in York.

The scheme in the Leeman Road area of the city is designed to reduce flood risk to about 400 homes and businesses.

Funding for the scheme was turned down in 2011 but was approved in February 2012 after the council stepped in with a £1m contribution.
