Parts of Kent could be hit by the worst floods seen in the county for 60 years overnight. That's the warning tonight from the Environment Agency.
The most severe warning possible - danger to life - has been issued for Sandwich near Deal. Gravesend, Medway and Seasalter are also at high risk of serious flooding. In all, between 1,500 and 2,000 coastal and riverside homes are said to be in danger.
A number of factors are combining to cause concern. High winds are coinciding with high spring tides causing a prolonged surge down the east coast and into the Channel.
The high risk times are just before 1 o'cock in the morning - the area most at risk is The Quay at Sandwich, where the Environment Agency says flood defences are likely to be breached. Sarah Saunders reports.
There is more information about the flood warnings on the Environment Agency website.
