THIS was the scene at Llangrannog earlier this morning (Wednesday, January 3) as storm Eleanor continued to batter the Cardigan coastline

A Met Office yellow weather warning for high winds is still in place until 6pm tonight as the storm slowly moves eastwards and out into the North Sea while National Resources Wales isseed flood warnings for the Cardigan estuary.

The strong winds gusting up to 70mph overnight combined with the high tide has seen many coastal areas hit by flooding and debris being thrown onto roads.

People are being warned to stay away from the seafront, in particular beaches, promenades and coastal footpaths.

The A487 at Newgale is currently closed and any debris in the road is covered by water and the tide will need to recede before it can be cleared and reopened.

All sailings on Irish Ferries between Pembroke and Rosslare have been cancelled.
