60 Years ago today - the east of the country was devestated by the worst floods in living memory.
A massive storm, high winds and a tidal surge sent the sea flooding into Kent, Essex and right up the coast to Yorkshire.
300 people died - and over 24 thousand homes were destroyed. Holland was hit too with over 1800 losing their lives there.
Derek Johnson remembers the 1953 East Coast Flood and speaks to relief worker Tony Larkins, Eyewitness Bron Sadler, Manda Gifford from Canterbury Museums and Galleries and photographer Derek Darby.
