October High Tide batters Southport Sea Wall October 16th, 2012 admin Latest News Shares Comments Southport Pier was closed today (Tuesday 16th October 2012) for Health & Safety reasons. Today’s high tide backed by a strong southwesterly gale battered Southport seafront at midday. The sea defences are proving to be a good investment as years ago a tide as high as today’s would have caused serious flooding along Marine Drive. www.southportpier.co.uk Pictured below are photographs taken at midday Onthespot – your online reporter www.onthespotnews.co.uk Do you have a story to tell?
