Humberside Police : Please continue to be vigilant as next high tide approaches

 

Emergency services, Local Authority Partners and other agencies are warning the public to continue to be vigilant as the next high tides approach.

High tide in Bridlington is around 5pm.

The Environment Agency is warning that the combination of high tides and the potential for high winds could result in flooding across various locations in East Riding.

Whilst the wind levels and tides have reduced throughout the day, it is still vital that residents remain vigilant, take the right precautions if you are in a flood risk area and keep up to date on the latest weather information via the local news or on GOV.UK.

The public are asked to resist the urge to head to coastal areas to have a look at the high tides as this is extremely dangerous.
