I've opened the editor but I can't see how to fix the issue I'm afraid.

The coastline has already been fixed, but they aren't updated as often in Mapnik as other features. See the wiki coastline page, and perhaps check for Coastline tagged questions elsewhere on this help site, in particular "when does coastline changes appear on map".

Many thanks, as a bit of a newbie here, where/how should I have looked to see that this had been fixed please?

A good question. There used to be a map showing coastline errors which isn't currently available, though I think people are looking at the possibility of generating one again currently. I only happened to know it was fixed as I spotted the same flooding the other day and the person who broke it was on IRC and said they'd found the error and fixed it (one of the coastline ways was pointing the wrong way).
