PENARTH'S RNLI team are asking residents to be wary over high tides.

Exceptionally high tides are forecast for the next week, peaking on September 30.

The tides are predicted to reach up to 13m in height.

A Penarth RNLI spokesman said: "At this height, there is a risk of local flooding, cut off on the beach and other associated hazards.

"This period will be one of the biggest tides of the year, in an area that already experiences the second largest tidal range in the world.

"Poor weather forecasts could make this situation worse, with a risk of water topping over onto the esplanade.

"Please keep and eye on local weather forecasts, heed any local warnings and respect the water."
