A flood alert has been issued for the Largs coastline, and the rest of Ayrshire, on Thursday.

This alert is for coastal flooding. A surge and large waves will bring the risk of spray and wave-overtopping to exposed sections of the coast on Thursday.

This may cause isolated flooding to low-lying land and roads. The times of greatest risk are around high tide in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Remain vigilant and remember, it is your responsibility to take actions which help protect yourself and your property. Advice and information is also available through Floodline on 0345 9881188.
