1am: High tides have passed through Jaywick and Clacton-on-Sea in Essex this morning without any major reports of flooding so far.
Around 200 residents in Jaywick had gathered overnight at a rest centre after villagers were advised to evacuate their properties following warnings the sea water could rise by up to a depth of three metres.
But by one o'clock on Saturday morning the sea wall in the Essex village had still not been breached.
Police have defended the decision to ask people to leave their homes despite the fact that the storm surge did not cause serious flooding
Norfolk Police have thanked residents and volunteers across the coast tonight as the floods passed without any major incident.
For many of them, it was a little chillier than their native habitats, but that didn't stop these animals exploring today's snow.
