WIRRAL'S coast has felt the presence of Storm Eleanor after high tides and gusts of wind continue to batter the borough 

Flood alerts have been put in place from New Brighton to Hoylake, the Dee Estuary and the Mersey Estuary as high tides are forecasted to peak to 6.6m in some areas.

A red warning has been issued for New Brighton meaning that flooding of the promenade and roads nearby is expected.

Fort Perch Rock car park, Kings Parade and Harrison Drive is closed along with South Parade in West Kirby due to a flood risk.

Other areas that may be affected two hours before and after 12pm include the West Kirby coast, Ian Fraser Walk in New Brighton, Woodside Birkenhead, and The Dell in New Ferry.

Globe reporter Craig Manning is out on call to Wirral's coastal towns to catch a glimpse of Storm Eleanor's presence.
