And the RNLI issued a warning. The Hastings lifeboat tweeted:  “Starting to see the effects here in #Hastings with a near-spring high tide at 1250 - stay clear of the waters edge - beware of sea flooding the promenade - in an emergency, dial 999 and ask for the coastguard - stay safe.”

A yellow weather warning is in place until 11.59pm.

Network Rail has imposed a 50mph speed limit on all coastal lines to give train drivers more chance of spotting obstacles on the track.
