The Lifeguard service have warned the public to take extra care if they are travelling to the coast after forecasters warned of large and "potentially hazardous waves" in coastal areas.
Met Office forecasters said heavy rain and gale force winds would continue to affect the UK as the weekend approaches.
Will Stephens, RNLI Coastal Safety Staff Officer, said: "With more stormy weather forecast, we're asking people to take extra care if they're going down to the coast. Rough seas and extreme weather might look exciting, but getting too close can be risky.
"So respect the water and, in particular, avoid exposed places where big waves could sweep you off your feet."
Here's how town planning can embrace water, rather than fight against it.
The residents of one street in Egham in Surrey have described how they have coped with the devastating impact of the floods.
Somerset Levels have been one of the worst-affected areas during the floods and today's aerial images reveal the situation remains bleak.
