Penarth Esplanade closed during high tides

First published in Penarth news

PENARTH Esplanade has closed this afternoon for public safety due to flooding and overtopping of waves, February 5.

A Vale of Glamorgan Council spokesman said at midday: “We are at high tide at this moment and the road will be reopened once the water has receded and a clear up of debris has taken place.

“It is advisable that members of the public stay clear of coastal areas at high tides in particular whilst these adverse weather conditions persist.

“If necessary roads will be closed at coastal locations but only when there is a risk flooding and/or danger from overtopping waves.”

Barry Prom has also been closed.
