The Environment Agency has issued a Flood Warning for areas in Bridlington over the the next 24 hours.
The alert was released to coincide with a change in wind direction.
The Agency says:
“We expect overtopping to affect sea front areas as a result of high spring tides. Consequently, flooding of property, roads and land is possible between 4:30pm and 9:30pm on Sunday 29th September, and between 4:45am and 9:30am on Monday 30th September.
‘Areas most at risk are properties and businesses on Harbour Road and the South Pier and also around the Floral Pavilion.”
Bridlington seafront areas have not suffered from any severe flooding since the Beast from the East brought a series of easterly winds and high seas to the coast.
This caused thousands of shellfish to be washed up at Fraisthorpe several days later.

Much of the harbour was made inaccessible for several days during the high seas due to safety concerns
