Construction to start on 93 new flood defences [View all]

Construction is to start on 93 new flood defences this year to improve protection for more than 64,000 homes, the government has said.

It added that there was extra funding for projects to unlock economic growth.

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) said that new defences in Exeter, for example, would create more than 1,000 jobs and protect businesses employing 4,700 people.
