A PHOTOGRAHY enthusiast has been marvelling at Clevedon Marine Lake's high tide.

Strong winds and high tides are expected in Weston, Clevedon and Portishead today (Tuesday, April 9).

Residents are urged to stay out of the water.

Speaking yesterday, Councillor Mike Solomon, North Somerset Council’s executive member for culture and leisure, said: “The combination of very high tides and strong winds can be a dangerous one, and debris from the sea can be thrown onto the sea front.

"We would urge people to take great care when on the seafront. They should stay off the promenade and not try to cross onto it when the gates are closed.

“We have been contacting promenade businesses today and the community living on Knightstone Island, to make them aware so they can also be prepared.
