Lowering the Tone

BBC News reports that river dredging has begun on the Somerset Levels as part of a package of measures aimed at preventing a repeat of the winter floods.

The rivers being dredged are the Parrett and the Tone.

With apologies to Disgruntled Radical for borrowing his pun. He can use my mallard imaginaire one day.
