The northerly gales that brought damage to east coast harbours yesterday including Dun Laoghaire on Dublin Bay, also caused damage in County Wicklow at Bray Harbour.

According to local reports, up to eight boats were wrecked in the high seas yesterday afternoon as this reader video (below) illustrates.

There are now 'serious concerns' that more bad weather is on the way this week as Hurricane Lorenzo could hit Ireland on Thursday.

All local authorities have been instructed to activate crisis management.
