Britain's western coast is being lashed by high winds and strong rains following a month of unusually frequent winter storms.
The nearly non-stop storms have crumbled long-standing sea cliffs and damaged waterfronts.
"It's been one after the other with no break," Nicola Maxey, a spokeswoman for Britain's Meteorological Office, said Tuesday.
More than 100 flood warnings remain across England and Wales.
Heavy winds and rain have also battered the French coast, driving large waves into southwestern town of Biarritz on Tuesday.
