Record-breaking 'Winter Storm Hercules' heads over from US to add to Britain's woes
Adam WithnallMore flooding is expected across the country today and tomorrow as the west coast braced for the arrival of "Winter Storm Hercules", the system which has left behind a record-breaking deep freeze in the US.
Waves have been recorded as high as 27ft at Land's End, and reports on surfing forecast websites suggested scores of professional "big wave chasers" were tracking Hercules' movements across the Atlantic.
A flood siren warning of extreme danger to people and property has sounded in Dorset, as tidal surges and storms batter the coast.
