Whitby has been cut off and Sandsend is flooded as heavy rain has caused flash flooding in the area.

And worse could yet still be to come as high tide is set for 11.53pm tonight.

Police have warned that Whitiby is only passable via the A171 at Ruswarp if you are driving a 4x4.

Sandbags are available from the borough council depot on Enterprise Way in #Whitby according to local police tonight
