These new flood defences in Riverside, Newport, are successfully protecting 420 homes and businesses from flooding.

The problem of flooding has been an historical problem along the eastern bank of the River Usk.

The new defences are part of a seven million pound scheme to protect homes in Newport from flood damage.

The project was built with money from the Welsh Government and the European Regional Development Fund.
