A coastal flood alert has been issued for the Mersey estuary for tomorrow (Friday 3 January) when a combination of high tides and strong winds could lead to waves  over-topping the waterfront.

The Spring Tide will be at its highest at around 12:13 pm when it is anticipated to reach six metres.

People are advised to avoid the waterfront if possible. Further information is available at http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/
