Summer storm whips up big waves in Burnham-On-Sea
winds and high tides have created unseasonably stormy conditions
in Burnham-On-Sea this weekend.
southwesterly gusts whipped up big waves, as pictured here, sending
plumes of spray over the sea wall in several locations.
winds, accompanied by heavy, blustery showers, caused the postponement
of a beach clean in Burnham-On-Sea and an outdoor opera event at
Apex Park in Highbridge on Saturday.
Met Office issued a 'yellow' severe weather warning advising people
to take care if using seafronts and beaches. Rescue crews were called
out late on Saturday evening after concerns that a person was in
the sea, as reported here.
