FLOODING has hit parts of Dorset.

It comes after the Environment Agency warned of a “large tidal surge” this morning.

The Environment agency said both Poole Harbour and Christchurch Quay were at risk of flooding due to “high spring tides”.

Pictures show both areas have been bit by some flooding, with some roads and water-side green spaces impacted.

The Environment Agency say flood defences were checked and gates closed as part of the warning.

The warning particularly applied to undefended areas at Willow Way, Stanpit and Mudeford.
