The BBC says:

Climate change is having a major impact on Britain's coast, the seas around the coast, and the life in those seas, a government-sponsored report concludes.

The Marine Climate Change Impacts Partnership (MCCIP) says seas are becoming more violent, causing coastal erosion and a higher risk of flooding.

Higher CO2 levels in the atmosphere are making oceans warmer and more acidic, affecting plankton, fish and birds.

2006 was the second warmest year in coastal waters since records began.

Nothing new here and you have to wonder why anyone even bothers publishing these kinds of reports. And of course, as always, there can never be any benefits from climate change, only negatives. By some miracle, the planet was in a state of climatic perfection until 1800.
