VIDEO: More flood alerts issued for Cornwall

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 4:34pm 7th December 2018. (Updated at 4:40pm 7th December 2018)

Flood alerts have been issued for the north Cornwall coast ahead of Friday evening's high tide. 

The Environment Agency says strong winds could cause waves to spill over sea defences and harbours.

It means flooding is possible at areas along the coast, from Land's End to Hartland Point in Devon.
