Work has begun on an £18 million flood defence project in Newhaven in East Sussex.
The scheme, backed by the Environment Agency, will reduce flood risks to more than 800 homes, businesses and vital infrastructure in the area.
The project has been through two years of development including consultation with the local community and is due to be completed in 2019.
It will greatly reduce the risk of a repeat of the 2013 floods which caused widespread damage and upset. In addition, the scheme also supports the wider regeneration of Newhaven and will help to bring new investment, jobs and homes here."

It is thought the rough tides and strong winds of up to 50mph displaced them.
They were found spread over half a mile of beach between Southsea Castle and the South Parade Pier.
