The legacy of the winter storms continues to be felt right across our region with many communities still struggling to get back to normal - and in many cases rebuild their shattered livelihoods.
And none more so than the Cornish fishing village of Porthleven. Repairs are continuing to the picturesque harbour there, while many of the fishermen have only recently got back to sea. Our Cornwall correspondent Steve Hardy has been to meet some of them.
A beach cafe in South East Cornwall that was destroyed by the winter storms will officially reopen today. The Seaton beach cafe was left in tatters after waves crashed through the village in January. It has been completely rebuilt after being closed since the beginning of February.
A hotelier has told ITV News that Cornwall's been forgotten by the Government in the race to get the county up and running following the winter storms.
Zoe Holmes who runs the Bay Hotel at Coverack says this should be one of their busiest times of the year but trade is down by two thirds.
The main road into the village has been closed since the middle of February and might not re-open until the end of May.
