THE Coastguard is warning people to keep clear of a wall in Watchet Marina which has become 'unstable' due to heavy winds and strong rain.

Fourteen flood alerts are in place across Somerset with farmland and roads at risk as river levels continue to rise.

With more high tides and strong winds expected in Somerset, Watchet Coastguard says there is a risk there could be more damage to the harbour wall and it could be at risk of collapse.

The Coastguard is advising people to stay away and to call 999 if they see anybody in danger.

In a post on Facebook, a spokesperson for Watchet Coastguard, said: "On our return to our station from the first call out of the day we were tasked to check with the staff of Watchet Harbour Marina and representatives of Somerset West and Taunton Council at the scene of the harbour wall collapse.

"Having attended and inspected the damage with them a report was passed back to our maritime rescue coordination centre who then liaised with the harbour authority and so informed the police.

"A cordon has been placed around the access to the East Quay of the harbour as previously mentioned in another earlier Facebook post to ensure everyone stays safe and avoids the area.

"With more strong winds and a high tide forecasted there is the possibility that more damage could occur and more collapse.

"The local authority and harbour staff are dealing and their advice and instructions should be followed."
