A big clean up operation is underway along the North Yorkshire coast


tonight after a tidal surge hit Scarborough and Whitby.


High tide came at a quarter to five with many residents and business


Fortunately tonight though people are breathing a sigh of relief.


Carla Fowler reports now from Scarborough.


Well, here in Scarborough early this afternoon the tidal surge did hit as


expected, creating dramatic scenes here on the foreshore Road,


uplifting concrete bins and splashing the dwindle. But overall,


it seems the preparations that were put in place worked. It was around


half past four today, the high tidal surge hit the east coast. In Whitby,


Filey and Scarborough, some roads were closed but that did not stop


everyone from taking a closer look. It is thought to people were injured


after being hit by waves in beta and it was incensed and that is around


seven properties were inundated with floodwater. But in Scarborough, the


flood door seem to have done their job. The gale force winds created


powerful waves which picked up concrete bins and tossed them across


the foreshore Road but so far at least, the homes and businesses here


seem to have escaped serious damage. Harbour doors and Scarborough were


flung open to prevent them being battered down. They're are a degree


true extent of any damage will be true extent of any damage will be


known tomorrow. Well, I'm joined now by Lisa Dixon, one of the directors


at Scarborough Council. You've been in server command all day today. How


has the operation to protect people and property gone? Bearing in mind


there are 500 properties within the original warning area that we were


given, we have worked hard with our multi agency colleagues to ensure we


have done everything we can to protect property and also to prevent


risk to life and we've also been grateful for the support we have had


from the public and working with us on that and we are quite content


with the results of our work. We have however seen some pictures to


date of wave dodging, wave watching. There have been risk-taking on the


seafront. What is your view? Has been incredibly frustrating for us


to see the pictures of these people doing this. I don't think people


fully realise just how they are putting themselves at risk all those


people that are working hard to prevent risk to property and also


bearing in mind a lot of these people are volunteers, it really is


unacceptable and I don't think people fully appreciate just how


dangerous the situation has been today. Do we still have any concerns


about tomorrow morning's high tide? I am aware that there are two fodder


works for tomorrow, one for Foreshore Road and also won for its


end, but bearing in mind that the winds have decreased, we are not


expecting anything like the wave overtopping and high tides we have


had to date so although we will be working with our colleagues to


oversee the conditions, we're not expecting anything like today. It is


still bitterly cold here in still bitterly cold here in


Scarborough, but fingers crossed it is hoped that the worst is over.


The Shadow Minister in charge of Labour's national devolution


policy has called for a single mayor to be elected to represent


Jon Trickett, who's the MP for Hemsworth, says unless radical


action is taken now, Yorkshire will miss out on the tens


of millions of pounds of extra cash on offer for devolved regions.


Should Yorkshire fall out amongst itself so that we become warring


factions while London sits there with its arms folded, smiling


complacently because Yorkshire doesn't have a single voice.


That's the single question, I think and the


second question for Yorkshire is this - do we really want to sit


quiet with no voice at all at the moment while Manchester,


Liverpool, Birmingham, London, are all getting


Leeds at home to Derby in the championship.


The Rugby Football League has agreed a deal that will see a new club


set up in Bradford for the start of the season.


The old Bradford Bulls was liquidated earlier this month.


Four bids to revive the club were received


The new club will remain in the Kingstone Press Championship


and play at Odsal, but will start the new season with


Just before the weather with Keeley, we've been taking a look at some


of the videos you've been posting on social media tonight


Some incredibly dramatic pictures there. Fortunately it does not seem


to have been too bad in the end. Any more to come?


No, it is moving away so much quieter we can to come. Having said


that, it will not be totally trouble-free. We have a warning for


icy stretches into tomorrow. We have had a few showers around today and


across parts of the Peak District we could see a little bit of fresh snow


overnight. One or two centimetres. A cold, frosty night, temperatures are


ready below freezing. We will see a few showers skirting impasse parts


of the Peak District which could give a light covering their by


morning and with a widespread frost we're looking at the risk of icy


stretches. Some places across Yorkshire still have a little bit of


lying snow from last night, temperatures dropping below


freezing. Tomorrow, a few wintry showers across the course with the


breeze will have eased down but still brisk there. Hold but plenty


of sunshine inland. That's it from of sunshine inland. That's it from


5-6 is the best we will have. It stays cold into the beginning of


5-6 is the best we will have. It next week as well


stop Good evening, a cold, icy night, but some others have other


concerns. This was the scene earlier today, huge waves crashing on to the


shoreline at Whitley Bay. We still have the peak of the high tide to


come in other parts. This is the flood line number. It's if you have


any concerns. The worst of the wind slowly comes -- subsiding. Wintry


showers across the North of Scotland and some filtering well inland


across the Midlands, giving a light dusting in some places. An icy


night, temperatures widely close to or below freezing, particularly


where you have snow cover. Tomorrow starts cold. A large chunk of the UK


will have a fine, crisp, sunny day, from
