Big waves are wreaking havoc for motorists who parked near the coast this morning (Monday)...

Cars are being smashed by big waves at Cheyne beach in Ilfracombe this morning (Monday).

This stunning video by Steve Pugsley shows the power of the waves around the 9.34am high tide this morning. High water occurs again tonight at 9.58pm.

The Environment Agency currently has a flood alert in place for the North Devon coast from Hartland to Lynmouth.

People have been warned to take care when at the coast, particularly holidaymakers who may not be familiar with the region's high tides.
