Thanet Council issues weather warning

By Lily Houston

Thanet Council have issued a warning on Twitter after the severe weather conditions overnight.

The council are telling people to take extra care on the beaches and cliff tops as there may be falling rocks or debris.

This comes just hours after warnings to stay away from the shore in Margate as the weather, combined with High Tide makes the sea particularly rough.

They’re using hashtag #floodaware on their tweets to raise awareness of the issues of being near the coast this time of year in adverse weather conditions.
