Leeds has narrowly avoided serious flooding in recent years

The first part of a major project to protect Leeds from flooding has been launched.

Work has begun on defences at Woodlesford that will help to reduce the possibility of the River Aire bursting its banks.

The scheme – including a low-level landscaped embankment, small flood walls and a storage pond – will be followed by the main project in the city centre and Holbeck.
