  4. Flood alerts on North East coast

    Three flood alerts have been issued along England's North East coast as large and powerful waves are expected to "overtop sea defences".

    The Environment Agency said flooding was possible between Hartlepool and Cowbar and along the coasts of Tyne and Wear and Northumberland.

    High tides are expected at 21:00 today and 09:15 tomorrow, but a spokesman said "strong waves are expected throughout the night and into tomorrow morning".

    Areas most at risk are beaches, promenades, coastal footpaths and roads. Flooding of properties is not forecast at this point.
