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.
