One local said he had never seen anything like the knee-deep sea foam that hit land in West Angle Bay, Pembrokeshire.

I've never seen nothing like this, it's like snow...I didn't think the road was passable with the froth...it's unbelievable.

Children also rushed down to West Angle Bay to experience the full velocity of the wind but only lasted seconds before the gusts pushed them away from the coast.
