VIDEO: Who remembers this? Wirral Storm Surge


The winter of 2013/4 brought widespread coastal flooding to many parts of the Wirral including West Kirby, Hoylake and New Brighton. Flooding on the New Brighton waterfront left cars and businesses partly submerged by sea water.

In early December 2013 eight fire crews were called to Morrisons car park after vehicles were stranded in 2ft of flood water as a result of the severe weather.

A Morrisons spokesman previously told us that the store had “an inch of water on the floor”.
