Strong winds and high tides create stormy conditions in Burnham

Strong onshore winds and a high tide created stormy scenes in Burnham-On-Sea on Tuesday evening (May 19th).

The Environment Agency closed the town's flood gates at the jetty and Maddock's Slade as a safety precaution.

At the peak of the 11.3m tide shortly before 8.45pm, the storm waves crashed onto the sea wall steps, sending spray onto seafront pavements in several spots.

Further gusty winds during the next 24 hours along with more high tides are likely to create repeat scenes during Wednesday.
