Victoria Avenue is likely to be closed westbound on Thursday morning as Storm Ines – named by the French Met Office – is due to combine with the 12 metre high tides.

This week, Storm Ciara has battered the Island and caused travel chaos and the spell of bad weather looks set to continue. Another storm – Storm Dennis – is due to arrive this weekend.

Islanders are being advised to keep away from coastal areas, to ensure that buildings are secure, and any outside items are either brought inside or tied down and secured as strong force seven on Thursday morning.

High tide is at 8.15am on Thursday which is likely to delay some bus services, although school and colleges will be open as usual. With Victoria Avenue likely to be closed, decisions will be made tomorrow as to whether further coastal roads will need to be closed.
