The Environment Agency have told Heart: "Strong winds and large waves could cause minor disruption along the North Sea coast on Thursday from Yorkshire to Essex. Spray and waves may overtop sea walls and people are urged to stay safe and avoid coastal paths and promenades. The high winds and localised flooding on roads could make driving conditions difficult in coastal areas. Stay up to date with the latest weather forecasts and warnings from the Met Office and visit the Environment Agency website for flood information and to sign up to free flood warnings.
