A riverbank that collapsed during heavy rain in Cambridgeshire last month is set to be rebuilt.
The bank at Nene Parade in the town of March fell into the River Nene as the town flooded on 8 August.
Work is expected to take 25 days and will cost £30,000, which will be split between the county council and the Middle Level Commissioners.
The bank is to be reinforced and extra drainage installed to help prevent future slippage, the council said.
The town was badly hit by flooding when about 2in (50mm) of rain fell across the county in the space of an hour last month.
