North West schemes win share of £150m to increase protection against flooding

Three North West locations are among 25 projects across England to benefit from £150m of funding to test and develop new ways to respond to flooding.

The projects include cutting-edge flood forecasting and natural flood management schemes, such as apps alerting residents to danger, permeable raod surfaces to improve drainage, and schemes to protect vital sand dune beaches.

The funding boost follows a record £5.2bn investment in flood defences over the next six years.
