Police warn of more flooding disruption

News | Published:

POLICE have said that the Town seafront could close again as high tides and winds continue to cause problems.

A decision will be made tomorrow at about 8am, but the force said it was 'highly likely' the road will close between the Weighbridge and Town Church.

'West coast roads will also be monitored, but expected conditions indicate it will be unsafe to drive on these roads during the high tide period,' said a spokesman on its Facebook page.

Coastal residents and those in known flood areas have been warned to make reasonable precautions while islanders have been told to avoid the coast.

High water tonight of 9.7m is at 8.08pm and it peaks again at 10m tomorrow at 8.27am.

Marks & Spencer at The Quay, St Peter Port, was flooded on this morning's high tide.

The Fire & Rescue Service helped staff mop up the water.

Police closed The Quay for about an hour to stop rush hour traffic going through.

The west coast was also affected with the route between Vazon and Cobo being flooded by several inches.
