Gale-force winds battered the West Country this morning as there were reports of high waves along the coastlines.
Gale-force winds have battered the West Country with high waves causing problems along much of the coastline.
As 65mph winds struck the region, The Ship and Castle Hotel in St Mawes found its ground floor flooded after the waves were created a powerful force, smashing the windows.
While in Mousehole two cars took the full brunt of the power of the whipped-up waves.
The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for wind, while the Environment Agency said there was significant impact from coastal flooding along the south Cornwall coast, and minor flooding was likely in Devon.
Strong winds coincided with the high tides on Sunday morning resulting spray and wave overtopping.
There are 12 flood warnings in place, which means flooding is expected, and immediate action should be taken.
- South Cornwall Coast from Lands End to Lizard Point excluding Mounts Bay
- South Cornwall Coast from Lizard Point to Gribbin Head excluding Truro City
- South Cornwall Coast from Gribbin Head to Rame Head
- South Cornwall Coast from Rame Head to Wembury Bay including tidal estuaries

As a result the Environment Agency, and local councils sandbagged a number of areas most effected.
