The Environment Agency has warned of a "major" tidal surge - rising from a combination of gale force winds and a high tide - to hit the east coast of England. Severe flood warnings are in place along much of the Norfolk, Suffolk and Kent coasts and across the Anglian region. I understand many families in Norfolk have had to evacuate their homes as a precautionary measure. My thoughts are with them all.
I'm happy to say the Maths Afterschool Club passed with no bloodshed. I must say though that in all my years of being a child at school and having children and grandchildren I've never met such a misbehaved child as one of them in the group. Such a shame as it distracts the others who would be more willing to learn. I shall persevere though!
