Work is being carried out to repair the riverbank that has eroded.

Cllr Matt Binley, executive member for highways, travel and assets, said: “Works to repair areas of the riverbank along Northfield Avenue, between B&Q and Lidl, will take place between 9.30am and 3.30pm on February, 14, 15 and 16, reducing traffic down to one lane during these hours.

“NNC are currently working with the Environment Agency and engineers to agree a permanent solution to this length of riverbank which shows some erosion from recent flooding but doesn’t pose an immediate risk.”
