    The Holderness Drain Flood Alleviation Scheme will reduce flood risk to more than 800 homes, predominately in the Bransholme and Sutton areas of Hull.

    Wide areas of Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire were particularly badly affected by flooding in June 2007.

    There are 139,992 homes and businesses at risk of flooding across the city, the highest number in a single urban area outside London.

    This one on Bransholme is buzzing with bees and butterflies.

    So much nicer than a parched grass verge!

    They're the result of a new initiative by Hull City Council promoting biodiversity and reducing flood risk.

  11. Extra funding to protect homes against flooding

    The Enviornment Agency is to spend £1.9m helping to prevent flooding in South Ferriby.

    Almost 130 properties and 1,000 hectares of land were flooded in December 2013.

    It's hoped the scheme will protect 144 homes and over 5,000 hectares of agricultural land by 2021.

    It's one of 13 flood schemes which will benefit from a total of £40m of investment.

    Quote Message: A large part of the A1077, which runs through South Ferriby, will be better protected as a result of this scheme. As a key economic artery between Scunthorpe and Hull, better protection for the A1077 will secure existing businesses and jobs and stimulate economic growth in local communities.” from Mike Dugher Humber manager for the Environment Agency
