Extreme Weather


In Dawlish, Devon, 20 people were evacuated from their homes because of the extreme weather, and the sea wall under the main rail line collapsed.

A number of houses in Kingsand in Cornwall were evacuated after it became damaged by huge waves. Flooding has been reported across the region and councillors said it would cost millions to repair all the damage.

Police in Kingsand said they had to evacuate houses that had been damaged by stones being washed ashore, which smashed lots of windows.
The clock tower was “in a dangerous condition”, Cornwall Council said.

Cornwall Council’s leader John Pollard said the cost of storm damage was “rising to £10m as we speak”.
