A multi-million flood defence scheme is set to be unveiled along a Derbyshire river today, more than a year after construction work began.
The £8.7million scheme will benefit around 1,600 residents and businesses at risk of flooding from the River Dove, particularly between Scropton and the River Trent.
The area has flooded four times in the past 20 years, causing thousands of pounds worth of damage to nearby properties.
South Derbyshire MP Heather Wheeler will open the flood defence scheme at 12.45pm.
