News | Published:

ISLANDERS are being warned of likely 'disruption' and possible road closures at high tide tonight with more strong winds forecast.


This morning, at high tide, States police and honorary officers were dispatched to Havre des Pas, Victoria Avenue and St Clement's Coast Road, after sea spray and debris was reported coming over the sea walls.

A statement from the police said: 'High tide has now passed and thankfully all roads have remained open.

'High tide tonight is at 8.21 pm where it is anticipated that there will be further disruption.'

The force has asked Islanders to 'drive carefully' this evening around that time and advised that they will issue an update if any roads are closed.

They also thanked the honorary police for their assistance this morning.

Meanwhile, a yellow tide alert warning has been issued for high tide tomorrow morning by the Met Office, with spillage onto south coast roads again expected.

It says: 'Wind and wave conditions combined with high tides may cause spillage over sea walls with debris being thrown on to roads along Jersey’s south coast.

'High tide is at 8:38 am Sunday morning.'
