Road Washed Away 27/11/11
The tide tables warned us we could have a high spring tide of 8.4m last night, however Spurn was faced with an incredible tide of almost 10m! One lady attempted to drive through the flooded road, only to become stuck. With the waves hitting the vehicle and the lady unable to get out the lifeboat men were called to help. The road was buried under around a metre of water, but the lady was safely removed from the vehicle, and a few hours later the men returned to a scene of devastation. The car and road have taken quite a beating from mother nature, which I captured this morning.
