Flood warnings are in place across Wales as "supertides" continue to rise.

Areas at risk include Crofty, Clarach Bay, Aberystwyth and the Wye Estuary at Chepstow and near Tintern.

Flood Alerts are also in place for the north Wales coast from Anglesey, Swansea Bay and Gower, Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion, the Llyn peninsula and Cardigan Bay, Carmarthen and Crofty.

The situation is being monitored at the Usk Estuary, where an alert is in place.

Also on alert are the rivers Thaw, Llynfi, Ogmore, Cadoxton, Ely and Ewenny.

On Sunday evening there were reports of flooding at one property in Birchgrove, Cardiff, and another in Neath.

The spring tides reached an 18-and-a-half year peak over the weekend.

Natural Resources Wales warned of "dangerous conditions" that could see tides breach sea and river defences.
