Parts of Britain are being hit by a powerful storm which has washed away parts of buildings and infrastructure and left thousands of homes without electricity.
The Environment Agency says around 328 homes have been flooded since Friday evening - with more heavy rain forecast into the weekend.
John Danks reports from Kingsand in Cornwall.
