Greatham South breach September River Ribble (Long Preston 4 months ago   01:30

The Environment Agency has completed a vital new Teesside flood scheme which benefits local residents and businesses and provides a significant boost to local wildlife.

Costing almost £16million, the Port Clarence and Greatham South project has increased flood protection to Port Clarence residents from the River Tees and Greatham Creek while also creating new habitat the size of over 90 football pitches for local wildlife.

The Environment Agency has worked closely with local businesses SABIC and INOVYN as well as partners at Natural England and RSPB to complete the project.

This is the moment the old flood defence was breached and created the new area of vital habitat to give wildlife a boost.
