A village in Essex has introduced two beavers as an alternate flood management scheme.
Finchingfield are hoping that the beavers will do what they do best - felling trees and building dams, it means that the flow of water is slowed.
In 2001 the village was flooded damaging 37 homes and businesses causing £2 million of damage.
The beavers won't stop the flooding - but it's hoped they will reduce the severity and frequency of it as well as improving the environment for other wildlife.
Finchingfield Brook is the focal point of the village and the threat of flooding is a constant worry for residents.
The beavers won't arrive for another few months, but if the scheme is a success then it could be rolled out across the country.
