The Environment Agency said: "This flood alert has been issued due to a high tide forecast for Sunday afternoon.

"Highest tide is expected to be at 1.45pm. Flooding is possible two hours either side of this time from 11.45am to 3.45pm."

It added that flooding to properties was not expected, but that its incident response staff were checking its defences and structures and were prepared to respond if required.

"Please be careful along beaches, promenades, coastal footpaths and roads as large waves and sea spray could be dangerous," the agency said.
