One of the largest Severn Bores of the year is expected later today.

The great tidal surge is expected at Newnham at 8:50pm and and is due to arrive in Minsterworth an hour later.

Perhaps too late for the surfers.

You can watch these people surfing the Severn Bore earlier this year outside the Severn Bore Inn:

Last big Severn Bore until September

Today saw the highest tide of this year so far, and a five star bore to go with it.

Surfers travelled from all over the south west to ride the wave, which is caused by the funneling effect of the Severn estuary.

The Environment Agency's Dave Throup told ITV News West Country that it did not cause any flooding.
