Flood protection project to be approved

Enfield Council in north London is expected to approve plans for a new multi million pound flood protection project at a meeting on Monday. It is among the largest of 60 flood and coastal defence schemes that were due to be built across England in the last year.

The scheme is designed to protect homes near Salmons Brook in Enfield. Twelve years ago, about 200 homes in Edmonton were flooded.
