Dam proposed as solution to flooding problem in Essex villages along River Blackwater

A multimillion pound project to build a dam on the River Blackwater in Essex has been proposed by the Environment Agency.

The dam would be built near Coggeshall, protecting that village and its neighbours Feering and Kelvedon.

The area has seen significant flooding over the past two decades, the worst coming in 2001 when the centre of Coggeshall became submerged.
