Flood system work to start

WORK on a £100,000 flood defence system is set to start.

The work will intercept surface and land drainage on the uphill side of Fiskerton, east of Lincoln.

The plan is to redirect it back under, rather than through, the village.

It is to tackle the problem of flooding that has plagued the village for more than 20 years.

Work is expected to start tomorrow at Fiskerton Church Of England Primary School.

This part of the work is expected to be complete by September, in time for the children to return after the summer holidays.
