from a car on the seafront and some homes have been evacuated. These


pictures show what it has been a light tonight. -- it has been a


life. Paul, people are bracing themselves


for the second time in twelve hours, Well, three people were rescued from


a citron caso. Fortunately, one of our crew members was nearby and got


the car against a wall and got the family out. The family are safe but


I don't know about the car. -- Citroen Picasso. How much flooding


has there been there in Hornsea? Well, it has been bad enough that


people have been evacuated. One gentleman with diabetes was


evacuated and they are still evacuating. Thank you very much. The


very latest in there from Hornsea. Let's go live to our environment


correspondent Paul Murphy who is live in Skegness. What is the


situation there? Ahead of high side? Listening to what Glenn in Hornsea


were saying there, a very different experience. We are 20 minutes away


from high side. If the camera zooms in, you can see the ID believes that


the water is just starting to shall, lack on usual. -- is starting to lap

Bringing down Hull's tidal barrier - to protect thousands of homes again.


This morning's high tide passed without problem.


But the next 30 minutes are crucial with another high tide imminent.


Tonight, those living close to the water's edge on the Hessle


I'm just hoping it holds until we get home and can get everything


upstairs. We did so this morning but we still have staff to whose


upstairs. We will just sit it out and see what happens.


It will be a tense evening for some residents -


who were flooded just three years ago in the last tidal surge.


We didn't get much sleep last night. Went to bed late obviously.


Finishing off. Up at 4am as well and we just have to wait and see now.


In Skegness, more than 100 army officers have been


working through the night to advise and reassure.


The offer of evacuation to an inland rest centre last night was taken up


The effort has shifted now from warning and involving people of the


potential for the high tide at you now being reactive underneath the


Fire Service, supporting them, to evacuate personnel should be

The East Coast surge is being monitored and assessed


from a dedicated command centre in Lincoln.


This is an incredibly serious situation. That's why we've got the


army, air support, the fire and police service working together but


it's also bad saying to people that the support is there to be


proportionate and we need to make sure people take these risks


seriously. If you look around, people are not panicking, they


understand the risks and that is the right response.


Tonight, the tide is higher than this mornings and will have


been energised by a day of strong wind.


But its precise potency will not be fully known unti


So, even though there doesn't appear to be that big of a threat to homes


or businesses in Skegness, Peter, tonight, there has been a warning


from Lincolnshire Police to people turning up to watch the waves along


this cows that they are still very strong, very dangerous. -- coast. We


saw a very gradually site of a man setting the tidal wave on Skegness.


He was there for about 40 minutes. There is a warning from the


authorities. The Army are coming down later, we believe, to God and


of certain areas of the beach because there is concern that far


too many people, as you can see here, are turning up to watch the


tidal wave. -- cordon. Paul with good words there for those who want


to get and sightsee. Let's go to our correspondence in cell therapy at


the moment. -- South Ferriby. How is looking there? It looks a bit


generic. If you would down the road, the Environment Agency are down


there stopping people from travelling through South Ferriby


village for their safety. -- look. There are barriers right along this


road to stop any potential water from coming over the cause is just


your these barriers, that hedge, that is manly flood plain is. The


reason they are placed there is because this is where people live.


There are 1400 properties which flooded three years ago and, as the


water levels are rising, sell our people's anxiety because they were


flooded very recently. Just down the road, there is a pub which acquired


its rise as well. They said they had sandbags around them and now those


have disappeared under the water a day is rising. What is blatantly


clear is, as Paul says, people are ignoring warnings to with their


cameras. The Environment Agency say it is very dangerous and you please


is away. Thank you. High does vary a bit. Between six 40 7pm and 6:49pm.


-- high tide. A little earlier, I spoke


to Emma Howard Boyd, the chair of the Environment Agency,


and asked her how concerned I think it's key that people take


precautionary measures as we are indicating in the warning


and informing that we've been What do you actually expect


in our part of the world Well, we have to wait and see


but what we are doing in Hull today is putting down the barrier


because we want to make sure that the community


in Hull is protected. We have something like 17,000


properties behind the Hull barrier that will be protected

more visible in many What lessons have you learned


from three years ago? It's really key that we are out


warning and informing the communities that we are


active in today. We have had this east coast tidal


surge coming down the country, We want to make sure that people


remain safe and protected. We've got lots of defences in place,


but they are also out there with barriers,


we've put our barriers, we are making sure that we also have


pumps available to remove water, But it's important that people


respond to the sort of messages The chair of the Environment Agency.

Paul Rose started off his Yorkshire adventure


He also had a go at riding a penny farthing as he trekked the 79 miles


from the Hessle to Filey on the East Coast.


I spoke with Paul earlier and asked him how the what makes


They are so beautiful. There's something about them. I go to


exciting places I'm going to the last exciting places on the planet.


That takes a lot of effort. With Wolds, it is easy. It's a joyous


experience. Can you see the integration? Absolutely. The big


skies, the overlapping redlined in the valleys. The colours, the


shades. It's a beautiful centre in those valleys that blows me away.


Life you read about the Humber. We wanted to feature the Humber Bridge.


-- you read about -- wrote. Yes, you do it by becoming an expert relo.


Possibly wider. Every bit as challenging. I rode along it. That's


how I started the programme. It was a great start. Exciting,


challenging, very enthusiastic and there is the bridge. I gather


there's a big Penny Farthing enthusiast in Cambridge I didn't


know about. Are they hard to write? Yes, Cheney and his family are the


expert on them. -- Tony -- ride.. I was sat upright again, I'm going to


ride a Penny Farthing to day. The wheel is up to year and the thing


is, it's a committing move. You have to scoot them along and make a jump


for the seat. Once you are on... A bit uncomfortable on the old...? It


is. A dangerous job. You just have to make it work once you're on. I


went to complete fair to complete while and I've now got one. You what


one? -- You can take that in the Lake District, can you? Now, I but


ride it for about two hours and is great. Now, back to Wolds Way. Is it


a stroll? It's a stroll. We are drawn to gist Oslo and fuelled


adrenaline adventures but thankfully the Wolds, you can do it in a week.


-- testosterone fuelled. We will watch the programme tonight. Yes,


thank you. You will it. Thank you. That'll be fun. Business that in 30


minutes. -- don't miss that. Let's get a recap of the national


and regional headlines. The NHS struggling to cope. Major


alert in almost half of all trusts in England in the first week of the


year. Flooding hits East Yorkshire. Three people rescued from a car and


many homes evacuated. The weather, mainly girls with top temperatures


at best ever night at around three Celsius, that is 37 Fahrenheit.


Let's go back to our main story then. The flooding which was caused


by the high tide as they saw earlier. Paul Murphy is in Skegness


at the moment. It's just about high tide there, how is it looking? You


are bang on time, actually. I tried here and there it is blindly in


Skegness. Skegness has escaped above it, of course. The full Moon has


been creating all these bring tides. A huge emergency response to the


threat of the tidal surge over the past 24 hours. That is been seen as


something that is welcomed by the community. These really emergency


services have learned their lesson from December 2013 when some aspect


of their response were criticised. Just a freak snow tonight from


Humberside Police, they have told us this is the last -- in the last 20


minutes, some homes have been evacuated as a precaution. Not


everybody is out of the woods quite yet. Thank you very much indeed,


Paul, for the latest. Interesting there. Responses coming in, John


said as a resident of a place at high risk, all he got was a full


colour with a recorded message. No sandbags, no members of the


Environment Agency. Another said the Environment Agency did a great job,


acting swiftly to enjoy DVDs are prepared. Natalie set a very well


done to the emergency services and the Army for preparing the people of


the cows for the web. -- communities. -- east coast. We had


what Paul was saying there that is being evacuated. Humberside and


regulations are on the be for the next colour. As a peaceful, they
