Weather warning: watch out for waves and wind

Big waves and blustery winds are predicted for coastal areas through tonight and Tuesday.

Waves of between 2-4 metres (about 6-12ft) are expected through the peak of the swell early on Tuesday, says the Met Office.

There will also be strong winds, with the potential for gale force gusts around coasts in western areas – which may make for difficult conditions for those camping. People are being urged to take care.

Large waves could make some normal coastal activities we take for granted significantly more risky; the force of surging water or breaking waves can easily knock you over and quickly and drag you out of your depth and once in the water it can be difficult to get out.
