'Supertides' expected to hit UK coastline

The biggest high tides in two decades could hit parts of the UK coastline on Sunday.

The Environment Agency says the spring tides are due to reach the peak of an 18.5 year cycle, which could cause coastal flooding in some areas.

The high tides are the result of the sun, moon and earth aligning to create a greater than normal force over the oceans.

Scott Ellis reports.
