People in Southwell in Nottinghamshire will get their first view of a flood model designed to help protect the town after freak flash floods last summer.

A month's rain fell during the flash flooding when 56mm was recorded across Nottingham in 3 hours.

The computer-generated model will be shown at a public meeting tonight. It's hoped it will help protect homes and businesses in the future.
