Flood alerts are in place tonight along the Essex and Suffolk coastline.
High spring tides, coupled with strong winds of up to force seven and a tidal surge of around 0.4 metres have prompted the Environment Agency to issue the warnings.
The coastline from Felixstowe to Harwich, including the Rivers Stour and Orwell estuaries, and from Clacton to St Peter’s Flat including the Rivers Colne and Blackwater estuaries, are covered by the warning.
A flood alert means flooding is possible and people in affected areas should be prepared.
High tide is due in Harwich at 0.36am on February 10, and in Clacton three minutes later.
