As a result of the current Arctic blast currently sweeping the country, emergency plans have been put in place in preparation for the potential of an East coast surge.
This includes the deployment of fire and rescue service and other National Resilience assets.
This follows the cold northerly wind which hit parts of the country and bad weather is set to continue.
This deployment is to help protect the public threatened by the East Coast tidal surge and is organised through CFOA and National Co-ordination and Advisory Framework (NCAF).
Assets currently deployed include FRS boats, tactical advisers, flood rescue teams, high volume pumps and command units.
Mobilisation has currently taking place in the following areas: Lincolnshire; Norfolk; Suffolk; Skegness and Humberside.
Updates will be issued as the situation progresses and changes.
