High tides spark flood alert for Avonmouth
A flood alert has been issued for the River Avon at Pill and Shirehampton because of unusually high tides.

It says: "Onshore flooding may occur as a result of high water levels combined with high-energy waves."
The high tides are predicted for 7.30pm this evening and 7.45am tomorrow.
