Aberystwyth residents mop up after flooding

People on the coast of Wales are surveying the damage after a day of massive tidal surges.

Those living on the Aberystwyth seafront and town centre were asked to evacuate properties on Friday evening.

There was a similar request in Borth, with severe flood warnings issued for both areas - the highest alert warning of danger to life.

Around 100 residents spent the evening in rest centres until the huge waves had passed.

Charlotte Dubenskij talked to people in Aberystwyth as the mopping up began on Saturday.
