The North Cornwall MP and Floods Minister Dan Rogerson is to meet with fishermen in Padstow affected by the storms this lunchtime. Some have been unable to put to sea since December due to rough seas and storm force gales.
Crab fishermen have been amongst the worst affected, with some losing tens of thousands of pounds worth of crab pots out at sea. It means they will have to first sail out to repair the damage before they can begin fishing again. The fleet in Padstow are expected to ask the Minister about more financial support for fishermen affected by the bad weather.
