Belton flood prevention work to start

Published

Work is about to get under way to improve the water drainage system in a North Lincolnshire village which was badly affected by flooding in 2007.

Nearly 20 properties in Belton were damaged three years ago, and about 80 homes are said to be at risk from further flooding.

The work, which begins on Monday, includes putting in a new drain between Millers Brook and King Edward Street.

The Environment Agency is carrying out the work, which will cost £320,000.

It will take about 15 weeks for it to be completed.
