Upton to get flood defences

The Environment Agency has unveiled plans to build permanent flood defences around Upton-upon-Severn in Worcestershire.

The project, consisting of walls and a grass bund, will cost £4 million and will replace the temporary defences that are currently standing.

In the summer of 2007 the town was flooded causing thousands of homes to be evacuated.

Residents are being asked for their views on the flood defence scheme.
