Dawlish train battered by waves

6 February 2014 Last updated at 21:56 GMT

One of the last trains to use the railway track at Dawlish before the line was closed has been captured on video.

The footage filmed on Monday shows how intense the waves were before the line collapsed.

Network Rail say the storm destruction of the railway line, which connects Devon and Cornwall to the rest of the UK, will take a minimum of six weeks to repair.
