Flood warnings as high winds are forecast
People living along the Westcountry coast are being warned of possible flooding from high tides and stormy weather.
The warnings for Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and the west and south coasts of Wales come as high tides and strong winds are forecast this morning and evening.
The Environment Agency said strong westerly winds would cause stormy seas which, combined with some of the highest tides of the year, would lead to high sea levels and spray coming over sea walls.
Low-lying coastal roads, farmland and isolated houses could be vulnerable to flooding, but the agency is also warning of the possibility of more significant problems.

Last night there were 21 flood warnings in force, mostly for coastal areas in the South West and Wales, and also in the North East, and high tides today were expected to lead to more warnings being issued.
The Environment Agency said its teams had been out checking flood defences and closing tidal gates ahead of the high tides, and warned people to be careful driving or walking along the coast over the next few days, especially in exposed areas.
