FLOODING is possible across the seafront tonight as the Environment Agency warns of unusually high tides and strong winds.

Low pressure is expected to cause sea levels to be higher than forecast in tide tables from Burnham-on-Sea and up to Kingston Seymour, including Weston-super-Mare.

The high tide is expected to hit the coast at 7.15pm tonight (Wednesday) and the forecast wave height is more than seven metres.

The second forecast high tide is at 7.30am tomorrow (Thursday) and waves are again expected to reach more than seven metres.
