Town clerk Colin Poole has warned of the dangers of getting too close to the sea wall during high tides.

Mr Poole said: “The water coming over the seawall is probably 50 per cent water and 50 per cent wood. They shouldn’t be lulled into a false sense of safety.

“It’s one thing to go and watch, but watch at a sensible distance. Someone’s going to get hurt if they’re not careful.”

Insp. Weeks said: “People should not underestimate the weather and put themselves at risk for the sake of getting a picture.

“It’s not just the wind and the rain, there may be debris - a path or wall may be in danger of collapse.”
