Water came bubbling over the steps at the front of the Pavilion Theatre.

Beach debris including pebbles, seaweed and cuttlefish bones were dragged across the promenade east of Worthing pier and down the steps near York Road.

The waves crashed up the rocks at Splash Point and the water drained into the forecourt at Worthing Rowing Club.

There were deep floods around the shelter, too.

The promenade remained open during this morning’s high tide but a foreshore inspector was on hand to keep an eye on the situation.
