The incredible weather event captured on 5th February 2014 overlooking the clock-tower and coastline at Porthleven on the southern Cornish coast.

During this storm surge the gates to the inner harbour were damaged and resulted in the sinking of seven vessels of various sizes. I watched on in shock as the harbourmaster coordinated the frantic removal of the remaining boats.

Total carnage ensued around the South West.
