I went down to the quay this lunchtime to see how high the tide got... It was the highest I've ever seen it, though a I guy I was talking to said he'd been there at 1am last night and it had been at least a foot higher. Here's a short video, and then some pics:
Apparently last night this car was covered up to the top of the wheels:
How or why they'd managed to park this side of the flood barriers I don't know... I guess the windows are open to help it dry out! I was told that the water had been spraying through the flood barrier wall here, where it was still accumulating at high tide today:
The evidence of this could still be seen - silt on the pavement:
There was also some seepage going on today:
And the flood barriers were still closed:
Glad it wasn't any worse!
