A social enterprise has been appointed to carry out maintenance work on the River Don as part of a £19 million flood defence project in the Lower Don Valley.

The River Stewardship Company will be managing trees and invasive plants, along with removing litter and debris. The company has spent the last two years working on a pilot project on the Don. Construction of physical flood defences is set for completion next summer.
