Waves of nearly nine feet have been detected off the coast while extreme weather continues to cause problems on land.

A detector buoy off Seaford recorded the monster waves at 8.9 feet at roughly 10am today (November 3).

Water temperature is sitting at around 14C while south-westerly winds of 21 miles per hour are causing some spray on the shoreline.

Waves of 8.9 feet have also been recorded off Rustington and 8.7 feet at Pevensey Bay.

Meanwhile the entire county remains under a yellow weather warning for rain until midnight tonight, with thunder and lightning forecast in places.

It means those heading to Lewes bonfire this evening could face adverse conditions, however organisers are confident that the celebrations will not be dampened.
