Flood warnings will remain in place today in Scarborough and Whitby for this evening's high tide.

This morning's tidal surge passed without incident but the second, higher tide of the day around 4pm means that businesses and residents are being warned to remain vigilant.

Property owners in the areas at risk are being urged to deploy any flood defences that they have; those owners who require assistance and support to protect their properties, can obtain sandbags from stock piles that are being located at:

Staithes - RNLI boathouse and harbour side near fishermen’s store

Sandsend - council car park at the bottom of Lythe Bank and rear of toilet block adjacent to doctor’s surgery

Whitby - Endeavour Wharf adjacent to the old tourist information centre and various locations along Church Street
