Our region has so far escaped the worst of the flooding - certainly in comparison to the south-west of England - and one of the main reasons for that is flood management schemes like the Denver Sluice on the River Great Ouse in Norfolk.
The sluice handles water from the Great Ouse and its tributaries including the Lark, the Cam and the man-made Old and New Bedford Rivers. Matthew Hudson spent the day at the sluice seeing the work they do.
