Cramlington pupils help decorate flood walls

YOUNGSTERS used their creativity to help design a new £70,000 scheme to reduce the risk of flooding in a North East town.

YOUNGSTERS used their creativity to help design a new £70,000 scheme to reduce the risk of flooding in a North East town.

The Environment Agency built three walls to improve the flow of Horton Burn in Cramlington, and children from Eastlea and Northburn primary schools helped to transform one of the walls with colourful leaf designs.

Families are now being invited to see the new structure in place at an open day on Saturday.

Anyone can head along to the site, on the open land next to the river, opposite the fire station, between 10am and 4am.

Northumberland Wildlife Trust will be there running pond dipping, clue trails, crafts and other activities.
