The lowest tides along the Somerset coast for 200 years will enable a glimpse of rarely seen marine species during the weekend, nature experts say.

The tides will drop by 36ft in places such as Minehead where the remains of submerged woodlands can be seen.

Nigel Phillips, of Somerset Wildlife Trust, said: "It was a bit like the Somerset Levels with Aldercar oak and birch woodlands."

Wildlife surveys will also be held over the weekend.
