Could this be the face of Storm Dennis?

Photographer Simon Emmett captured this phenomenal shot of waves crashing against the Cobb during high tide in Lyme Regis yesterday morning.

The spooky face comes ahead of the arrival of Storm Dennis, due hit Dorset at the weekend.

Yesterday saw the west Dorset coast, including Chesil Beach, West Fleet, East Fleet, Cogden Beach, Burton Bradstock, Seatown, Charmouth, and Lyme Regis, on flood alert.

Although conditions improved slightly last night, a significant deterioration is expected this weekend with the arrival of Storm Dennis.

The storm is expected to arrive around 12noon on Saturday and power through to Sunday lunchtime.

It is predicted to bring outbreaks of rain, heavy and intense at times, with mist and fog over hills and coasts, and is expected to affect all of south west England over the weekend.

At this stage, Storm Dennis is not expected to be quite as powerful as the recent Storm Ciara in terms of strength of wind, but is expected to bring more rain.
