The Cornish town of Looe is one of many coastal communities across south-west England which has been left flooded after being hit by strong winds, large waves and a high tide.

As the town's householders and businesses begin the clean-up, several say they want action to prevent flooding in the future. They also raised concerns at how the town's tourism trade would be hit.
