Huge rock ramp built to help fish travel up River Almond in Livingston

The UK’s largest rock ramp has been built to help fish travel up a West Lothian river.

More than 9,000 tonnes of rock has been used on a section of the River Almond at Howden Bridge Weir so fish can reach spawning grounds.

The ramp was built between existing islands over three months.

It forms a waterfall-like structure made up of pools, runs and easy leaps to help fish over the weir. The river bank has also been restored.
