There are fresh flood fears for Cornwall.

It is after storm surges during high tide this morning, driven on by winds of up to 60mph.

Flooding has been reported in Fowey, Looe, St Ives, Porthleven, Mevagissey. Penzance and Tresillian.

On top of that Cornwall is covered by a yellow weather warning for torrential rain - with up to 3cm set to batter us in just three hours.

Another warning has already been issued for Tuesday and Wednesday.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "Another spell of wet and windy weather is expected to cross the area from the west during Monday. Outbreaks of heavy rain will be accompanied by strengthening southerly winds which may also combine with high tides to increase the risk of coastal flooding in exposed locations.

"The public should be aware of the risk of further disruption.

"A deepening low pressure system will track northwards close to western Britain on Sunday night with the associated frontal system likely to bring another spell of heavy rain and gales to western and southwestern areas during Monday.

"Another 20 mm of rain, perhaps with 30 mm or more locally Cornwall and Pembroke, is likely, much of it within 3 hours or so. Whilst totals will be less (5-10 mm) further east, pre-existing saturation brings the risk of flooding here too."

Winds will also strengthen to give gusts of 50 to 60 mph around exposed coasts and headlands. Gales coupled with high tides brings the risk of waves overtopping coastlines."

It follows a weekend of wild weather, which battered towns and villages across Cornwall.

Up to thirty homes and businesses found themselves underwater in Looe.

A fresh hole has been ripped in Towan beach road in Newquay.

Even before the latest damage - the council thought the repair bill from the winter storms could top £3m.
