Suffolk flood defence sea wall work to start

Sea walls in Suffolk will soon be repaired to stop tidal flooding.

The Environment Agency said "essential maintenance" will be carried out on the sea wall along the River Orwell from Wherstead to the Orwell Bridge.

Trees, bushes and brambles will be removed as they can cause structural weakness, an agency spokeswoman said.

To reduce the impact on the environment, replacement shrubbery will be planted next to the sea walls when work starts in September.
