UK storms: Amateur footage shows waves battering Devon

Coastal towns in south-west England have been left flooded after being hit by strong winds, large waves and a high tide.

The Environment Agency earlier warned of extreme danger on the Cornish coast and issued a severe flood warning.

Places flooded in Cornwall include Looe, Fowey, Newlyn, Porthleven and Mevagissey. Devonport in Plymouth and Kingsbridge, Devon, are also flooded.

Amateur and BBC footage shows the strength of the waves off Devon.
