Waves as big as 14.2 metres high battered France’s Atlantic seaboard on Saturday evening, causing some damage but no injuries.

The country’s main weather service, Météo France, has put much of the west coast on alert, warning residents to act with caution.

The waves, driven by a powerful swell, broke over the seawall in some towns, breaking shop windows and flooding the streets.
