"High tides of the century" draw crowds

Thousands of people have crowded the streets of Normandy in France to witness the "high tides of the century".

The island of Mont Saint-Michel, which is half a mile offshore is being cut off by the exceptionally high tides.

Saturday evening's high tide is predicted to be as tall as a four-storey building.

Friday's solar eclipse is thought to have produced several days of high tides.
