It's part of a £28.5m project to reduce the flood risk along the Holderness Drain.

The pumping station is being built built at the southern end of the drain where it meets the Humber in Marfleet.

Andrew Barron, from the Environment Agency, said: “It is great news this scheme is coming to fruition.

"Hull and the surrounding area is very low-lying and this pumping station is vital to keep water moving into the Humber estuary."

Matt Armitage, from Highways England, which contributed £5m to the scheme, said: “When complete, it will protect homes and roads from flooding.

"It will also reduce the need for local traffic to be diverted onto the A63, minimising future disruption along this key Hull route.”

Councillor Michael Bryan (pictured), 75, who represented the South West Holderness ward and was Mayor of Hedon in the 1990s, died on Saturday in Castle Hill Hospital.

He was admitted to hospital in February with sepsis and other health problems.

Council leader, Richard Burton, said: “Mike was not only a colleague, but a friend as well.

"He was a very kind-hearted person who was passionate about his community and would always represent the interests of his residents at every opportunity.

“He was a great man and will be a deep loss to all who knew him - the residents of South West Holderness have lost a great community champion."
