STORMY WEATHER: EAST COAST TRAVEL UPDATE http://t.co/NRYGtvoodd
Farmers along the East Coast are racing to repair flood defences following last week's storms which left hundreds of acres of farmland under water. Another high tide has been forecast for New Year's day.
There are claims from fishermen on the East Coast that Government investment in off-shore wind farms could put pressure on their struggling industry.

Fisherman's organisations say the earmarked areas will limit their fishing grounds - especially around Bridlington. Helen Steel reports.
Gary Hodgson from the National Federation of Fishermen's Organisations has been talking to Calendar about how recent changes to wind farm policy could affect them.
There are fears a recent change in wind farm policy could affect our region's fishermen.
Subsidies for new turbines are now focussing on offshore developments which shellfish farmers fear could mean more developments in the waters off the East Coast they operate in. The group that represents them is hoping for more cooperation from energy firms
East Coast has revealed it will freeze more than half its to-and-from London fares and have below inflation rises on others. But its regulated fares, which include season tickets are rising by 3.1 per cent.
The company said that its overall average rise for all fares from January 2, 2014 was 1.12 per cent, with unregulated fares which include off-peak fares and tickets bought in advance going up by an average of 0.8 per cent.
Fishermen on the East Coast are calling for more co-operation with the windfarm industry when planning offshore sites. They say the most important fishing grounds need identifying so they can be preserved.
