Huge waves smash sea wall as Britain faces more snow and ice

Incredible drone footage has today captured the devastating effects of Britain’s recent bout of bad weather when huge waves smashed a sea wall to pieces and flooded fields in West Sussex.   

3 years agoWith many still reeling from the gales and downpours of Storm Ciara, the last thing we all need is more bad weather. But forecasters are warning that the UK faces another battering, with the arrival of the fourth named storm of the season – Dennis – imminent. 

The system will develop in the North Atlantic before moving eastwards over the next few days and then hitting the country on Saturday with strong gusts of over 60mph, and heavy rain on the already saturated ground, so there is a further risk of flooding. 

It will reach the UK less than a week after Ciara brought 97mph winds, up to seven inches of rain, flooding and left more than 20,000 people without power.

Cumbria, Northumberland and vast swathes of Scotland have also been warned of ‘blizzard conditions’ by the Met Office.

The regions are subject of a yellow weather warning with up to 10cm of snow forecast in higher parts, while Northern Ireland could see further snow showers, forecasters said.

Further downpours are also expected, with 35 flood warnings in place, and 15 of those in the Yorkshire area that has been beset by horrendous flooding, five years after residents and businesses were hit by a deluge on Boxing Day 2015. 

There was reported disruption this morning on the M58 after a six car crash, and still delays on some rail services who are scrambling to recover from the impact of Storm Ciara.
