Tidal surge hits Galloway

A high tide teamed with severe gales and heavy rain hit Galloway hard on Friday, with flooded harbours and homes being evacuated.

Many areas were cut off as the surge hit over lunch time, starting at Portpatrick and making its way east along the Solway.

Our staff and readers were out and about recording the day so take a look at our video for a taste of what the region was faced with.
