EVACUATED: Jaywick in Essex has been evacuated due to fears over flooding

Extreme storms set to hammer Britain’s coastline tomorrow have forced authorities to clear the seaside town of Jaywick in Essex.

Essex Police will be going door-to-door from 4pm today to advise residents leave their homes before the storm hits.

A full scale evacuation of the Benefits By The Sea town will be carried out tomorrow morning from 7am. 

The evacuation comes in response to severe weather warnings of torrential rain and hurricane-level winds from the Met Office and the Environment Agency.

It comes as the UK is gripped in Polar chaos as brutal snow storms blanketed large parts of the country.
