Flood alleviation work completed
Itís taken more than nine months to complete and was projected to costs £1.5 million, but now it is finished and the residents of Warrengate Road are protected against floods.
The Mimmshall Brook Flood Alleviation Scheme will be officially opened at an invitation-only ceremony on Friday 5 March, when the local MP, Melanie Johnson, will unveil a plaque marking the event.
