Dramatic mobile phone footage shows the moment a car is almost swept away by stormy seas on a Cornish seafront.

The video, taken at Portmellon near Mevagissey, was taken by holidaymaker Luke Brunt at about 6.15pm last night [October 29].

The car can be seen driving head-first into huge waves at high tide. At times it is swept into the side of nearby buildings.

Remarkably, the driver made it to the other side unharmed.

Mr Brunt said he believes the driver intended to film themselves attempting the crossing.

He stopped got his phone out ready and set off.

The Coastguard are warning people to be wary of extreme weather around our coastlines.

I really would urge people to stay well away from breaking waves, there is no doubt that they make dramatic scenes but it just takes one unpredictable wave and you may not make it home to your loved ones.
