VIDEO: Council leader says ‘let’s have our barrier in Boston’

Boston Borough Council leader Peter Bedford has called on the authorities to press ahead with a tidal barrier to save the town from further flooding.

Speaking to The Standard on Friday, Coun Bedford: “We realise that things are progressing through the different channels and committees but it now really does send the message to the Environment Agency to say ‘come on, let’s have our barrier, don’t hold back, let’s really go at it’.”
