The 2007 test of an Essex flood warning siren. This one is in a field next to Station Approach on Canvey Island. Take a look at danwisbey85's page for an excellent close-up of the test.

the flood sirens look like the old WW2 Sirens.

Thanx Andrew - wow that certainly brought back memories of my school days during the blitz. A similar siren used during the second world war was sounded nearly every single day warning of impending German bombers - oh those were the days!
