Bucklebury's flood defences unveiled
A £600,000 flood defence scheme for Bucklebury in Berkshire will be officially opened later.
Streets and homes in the village - made famous as the childhood home of the Duchess of Cambridge - suffered considerable flooding in July 2007.
The Bucklebury Flood Alleviation scheme includes flood embankments, a dry ford and a bypass channel to divert excess water around the village.
The scheme will help protect 25 homes, a Norman church and village hall.
Local residents raised £65,000 towards the defences, while West Berkshire Council contributed £45,000. The remainder was provided by the Regional Flood Defence Committee.
The scheme will be officially opened by Newbury MP Richard Benyon.
