North Berwick Harbour dinghy park flooding 30 Mar 2010.AVI

North Berwick, East Lothian, Scotland, 30 Mar 2010 - Spring tides coupled with unprecedented high winds and surging waves breach the outer harbour wall to tear dinghies, motor boats and their trailers from secure points in the tarmac dinghy park - piling many against the inner harbour wall (formerly the wall of the lido - open air swimming pool). Others are washed in 1.5metre swells from the park into the harbour or smashed against harbour railings. Locals said that this was a once in a lifetime event caused by exceptionally high spring tides, days of North Easterly winds and an unusual low pressure front.
