Thames Barrier to close as “one of the highest” tidal surges forecast

The Thames Barrier is likely to close tomorrow as a 1 metre tidal surge coming from the North Sea is expected to head up the Thames.

North Sea surges are some of the most dangerous weather and tidal conditions that can result in flooding. It caused the notorious 1953 flood which in turn laid the way for the Thames Barrier. Expect some dramatic pictures of the Thames bank which appear every few months – but hopefully no more than that.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.
