It was over the quay at Yarmouth yacht station yesterday and Ive seen pics on fb of the Ferry House Surlingham where the garden is flooded as is the quay at Reedhan Ferry, when the ferry was at its normal docking point it was still sevaral foot from dry land and consequently it was closed for a while.

if it is to be it is up to me.

The flood alleviation scheme was designed so that controlled overtopping of the flood banks could occur in a manner that would not destroy the banks and would allow for a better strategy than simply increasing the height of the defences. This plan has still yet to be fully tested by a very large surge.
As for having a flood gate at Great Yarmouth, this will be the inevitable conclusion in the medium term, something that has been suggested and proposed many times over the last fifty years. The Dutch concluded many many years ago that having a shorter flood defence, rather than simply increasing the many kilometres of the older dykes was the way to go. Something that their long term flood defences have been coherently following since before the second world war!
