The Environment Agency will also be issuing a flood alert on the following high tide on the same day at 2.40pm.

Tides are expected to be higher than usual due to the forecast weather conditions during spring tides, with a strong force 4 westerly wind also forecast.

“We will continue to monitor the situation and will reissue this message for any subsequent tides if required.”
