Thames Valley Police have released this video giving advice to residents as the big clean-up after the floods begin.
Nearly 400 Council and privately-owned beach huts have been damaged at Bournemouth following violent wind, rain and exceptionally high tides on Friday. Around 30 are thought to be completely destroyed.
– Chris Saunders, Seafront Services Manager
It's very distressing to see our award winning beach and seafront in such a terrible state. We know how much local families love their beach huts and many will be devastated to see the damage caused. Staff are focusing on the extensive beach clean-up and recovery operation. From Monday, we hope to begin to contact beach hut tenants whose huts have been damaged, but due to the ongoing recovery needs as well as the extensive nature of the damage - there are unfortunately a lot of people to call - this could take several days.”
A list of those beach huts currently known to be damaged can be found on the Council’s website at www.bournemouth.gov.uk by clicking on the ‘Severe Weather’ feature.
Police are issuing advice after adverse weather leads to an increase of reports of unexploded ordnance
Members of the public who locate what they believe to be unexploded ordnance are being advised not to touch it but to call police straight away.
The adverse weather experienced over the past few days has caused more unexploded shells to wash up on the shoreline or be discovered on flooded land. It is very important for public safety that these items are assessed and removed appropriately.
Anyone who discovers items should call police on 101
Thank you to Emily Kirkpatrick for sending in these images of shattered beach huts at Boscombe. Many were reduced to firewood in Friday's storms. Around 60 are beyond repair.

The wife of a man killed after a freak wave hit a cruise ship in the English
Channel has criticised the "badly maintained" vessel as she paid tribute to
her "lovely husband".
James Swinstead, 85, died "almost instantly" after water rushed on board the
British cruise ship Marco Polo.
Mr Swinstead, a father-of-two from Colchester, Essex, was on the cruise with
his wife Helen.
Speaking in Tilbury after the ship docked, she said: "I think it killed him
"With our insurance I think I'm entitled to #2,000, which won't even cover
getting him home.
