A Scheme to protect part of Wakefield from flooding has won an award.
The Ings Beck Flood Alleviation Scheme won the prestigious Institution of Civil Engineers Yorkshire and Humber Centenary Award which is awarded annually to the best infrastructure project in the region.
The serious flooding in Wakefield in 2007 prompted Ings Beck to be included in the National Priority Programme.
The scheme will provide the city with defences against a likelihood of flooding once in every hundred years, protecting 715 homes and 59 businesses as well as the A638 major trunk road. It is a scheme that cost £14.8m, involving building defences at nine sites, spread over 11.8km of watercourse.

David Cameron is to meet a family unable to secure legal aid for the inquest of their two children who died while on holiday in Greece.
Christie Shepherd and her brother Bobby died in 2006 of carbon monoxide poisoning caused by a faulty boiler in their hotel, MPs heard.
Labour's Mary Creagh said the Legal Aid Agency had refused funding to ensure the family was legally represented at an inquest, which she said Thomas Cook attempted to prevent from taking place.
Prime Minister Mr Cameron said he was content to arrange the meetings sought by Ms Creagh, which included one with him and the family.
A Wakefield MP is calling on the government to provide legal assistance for a family whose children died from Carbon Monoxide poisoning while on holiday eight years ago.
Bobby and Christi Shepherd were just six and seven when they were overcome by fumes from a faulty boiler at their villa in Corfu.
Speaking in Parliament, Labour MP Mary Creagh called on the Prime Minister to address the issue:
When four-year-old Lucas Whiteley sent NASA a video with questions about space, he couldn't have predicted the response he got. Engineer Ted Garbeff recorded a ten minute video answering Lucas' questions.
We caught up with Ted, who works in California, and he told us how Lucas's video had captured his imagination enough to reply. He also had a special message for Lucas and his classmates who got a very special space lesson in school.
Four-year-old Lucas was taken aback when he sent a video asking questions for a school project to NASA.
But his dad was even more surprised - and as he told Calendar, it wasn't the first time he had contacted the space centre:
Lucas Whiteley needed help with his space project - so he asked NASA for help. And the space centre obliged - with a 10 minute video answering all his questions. Helen Steel reports.
The inquest into the deaths of a brother and sister from Wakefield, who died from carbon monoxide poisoning on holiday in Corfu - will finally be heard almost eight years after they died.
Bobby and Christi Shepherd were 6 and 7 when they were overcome by fumes from a faulty boiler at their holiday villa in 2006.
Today, West Yorkshire's coroner refused a request by holiday firm, Thomas Cook, to close the inquest, and decided that it will be heard in front of a jury. Michael Billington was in Coroner's court:
When four-year-old Lucas Whiteley from Wakefield was given a school project, he didn't bother with text books or even his teachers.
Together with his dad James, he wrote down questions, filmed them, and sent the video to NASA. And a few days later, an engineer called Ted sent an in-depth video explaining everything. Here, Lucas tells us the questions he asked:
A four-year old from Wakefield got the surprise of his life when he sent a video to NASA asking for help on his space project, and got a response.
Lucas Whitely asked the American space agency three questions with the help of his dad.
Engineer Ted Garbeff then unexpectedly sent back a ten-minute video, answering all his questions:
