With the weather conditions very poor the patrol headed out to check key areas and it wasn't long before we found some problems.
The Corfe river had burst its banks and was causing traffic problems. With the Police on the way we had to step in to control traffic before someone ended up in the stream.
With the arrival of Police a traffic plan was put in place with traffic diverted via the Studland road allowing traffic out of Swanage to flow with a bit more care.
Not really a Coastguard incident but this shows the close cooperation we have locally and to keep people safe. Flood water is dangerous and the Environment Agency have flood warnings in place in Swanage and Corfe.
