The last giant blocks are being put in place in Redcar's new £30 million flood defences. The wall, along the seafront, should protect hundreds of homes and businesses by reducing the power of the waves and stopping water from breaking over the top.
An 11 storey high crane is being used to lower the concrete blocks into place. Each of the 1,555 blocks weighs up to 28 tonnes.
The Environment Agency has given £25.5 million to the scheme, with a further £4.6 million coming from Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council.
The regeneration of Redcar’s seafront is also a key aim of the scheme.
