Storm Arwen: Moment beachgoers caught up in huge waves on seafront in Scarborough's North Bay
This was the moment on Saturday morning when beachgoers were caught up in Storm Arwen on the seafront in Scarborough's North Bay.
The video - supplied to The Scarborough News' sister site the Yorkshire Post - shows people running at speed to avoid the waves.
However, one man was covered by a huge wave which lapped onto the promenade.
The Met Office had issued a red wind warning for parts of north-east England which expired early on Saturday, but the forecaster said amber and yellow warnings for wind remained in place across large swathes of the country.

A few inches of snow also fell across Scotland and parts of England, with more expected during the morning.
At least two people died in different parts of the country as trees were blown over.
“Elsewhere, exposed sites in Scotland and Northern Ireland also surpassed 90mph, with 70-80mph seen more widely in the north of the UK, though parts of southern England and Wales also felt the effects of the storm.
“This has been coupled with a few inches of snow which has fallen in some areas.
“In the higher ground areas of Scotland we expected to see up to 15cm falling but the strong winds meant the snow blew around and created a blizzard in some parts.”
