The Environment Agency has issued a series of flood alerts for the Suffolk and Essex coastline ahead of tonight’s high tide.
Alerts have been issued from Felixstowe to Bradwell-on-Sea including the Orwell, Stour, Colne, Blackwater and Croush estuaries.
Tidal areas of the River Deben are also affected by the warning.
An alert means no immediate action is necessary, but flooding is possible in low-lying areas and people in affected zones should be prepared to take appropriate measures should the threat level rise.
The warning has been issued ahead of high tide which is around 2am (on September 1) as higher than normal spring tides are due.

Strong north/north-westerly winds are also expected along with a small surge.
