Too expensive

A SCHEME to reduce flood risk in Reading and Caversham is unlikely to go ahead.

A review by the Environment Agency said it did not offer value for money.

The proposed scheme included plans for flood walls, earth embankments and a bypass channel.

The agency said that since their initial estimates, the cost of the scheme had gone up and the benefits had gone down.
