Flood prevention work begins to protect Filey

Ground investigations are to be carried out in Filey ahead of a planned £5m scheme aiming to protect hundreds of homes in the town from flash flooding.

A series of boreholes and trial pits will be made in fields to the north and west of the town so soil and rock samples can be gathered and analysed.

The ground investigation work is due to be carried out over two weeks in May, with data about the type and strength of material in the ground set to bolster existing information gathered from previous works and monitoring programmes.

The work is to protect more than 500 homes considered to be at risk from a 'one in 100 year' rainfall event.
