VIDEO: Bridlington clean up operation starts after floods

Business owners and fishermen affected by last night’s flooding at Bridlington Harbour began the clean up operation this morning.

Yesterday at around 4.30pm flood waters began rising and overtopped the harbour, leaving some businesses under four foot of water.

This morning business people in Bridlington are sweeping water and debris out of premises, belongings and floorings are starting to dry out and the overall damage is being assessed.

High tide is expected at around 6.30pm today but waters are not thought to overtop onto the harbour to the same extent as last night.
