The view from Clevedon Pier after the storms

Staff at Clevedon Pier have Tweeted a video of the sea off the North Somerset coast at high tide.

It's filmed from the Porthole Room below the Victorian structure. The water is lapping at the round window - testament to the high seas after Storm Eleanor.
