Photos & Video: Storm waves hit Burnham-On-Sea seafront

A high tide and strong onshore wind created these stormy conditions along Burnham-On-Sea's seafront this morning (Thursday, October 9th).

The Environment Agency closed the town's flood gates at the top of the jetty, the yacht club and Maddock's Slade as a precaution against flooding.

Spray was sent over the sea wall along several parts of The Esplanade, but there was no flooding. A flood warning had been issued for parts of Somerset's coastline in readiness for the conditions.
