Natural Resources Wales (NRW) is warning of the risk of tidal flooding in North Wales because high tides and strong winds are likely to lead to large waves and sea surges.

The Met Office has forecast gale force winds to hit the North Wales coast particularly between Anglesey and Liverpool.

NRW says, coupled with high tides, this could lead to the risk of flooding for coastal communities in the area.
