Counting cost of tidal storm repairs around Wales

7 January 2014 Last updated at 20:12 GMT

The cost of repairing the damage caused by the storms of the last few days will run to millions, say Welsh councils.

It will cost at least £500,000 to repair the damage caused by the tidal storms at Newgale, Pembrokeshire, the county council says.

Workers have started clearing the main road that runs alongside the beach in Newgale, where tonnes of pebbles were washed ashore.

Officials say they have asked the Welsh government for funding from its emergency fund to help with the costs after Aberystwyth promenade was wrecked in the storms.

Other councils have done the same.
