Prime Minister Arrives in Storm-Hit Cornwall

(Updated 10:03am 28th November 2014)
The Prime Minister has arrived in Cornwall as part of a whistlestop tour of storm-hit communities in the southwest.
David Cameron has visited Kingsand, where 90 mile an hour winds and huge waves flooded homes and threatened to send the clock tower tumbling into the sea.
He is also visiting Newquay Airport.
It comes as a campaign is launched to spread the word the Duchy is open for business, amid claims weeks of storms risk damaging Cornish businesses.
The hashtag has gone viral on Twitter.
It is after days of coastal flooding and winds of up to 80mph.
Denise Udry runs Duchy Holidays in Perranporth. She said: "People will book last minute for February half term, so we've still got a week or ten days. Anything longer than that will obviously take effect."
But she thinks stormwatchers will travel to see spectacular mountainous seas: "They will phone up to ask us what the tides are, what time high tide is and what it's like. Even if they're over on the south coast they're still really interested in coming over on the north."
We are not out of the woods yet.
There are yellow weather warnings for heavy rain tomorrow, Wednesday and Thursday, an amber warning for gales midweek and flood alerts in place in southeast and west Cornwall.
A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "Further spells of rain, heavy at times, and accompanied by strong winds are expected during Monday night and Tuesday.
"The public should be aware of the risk of further disruption due to flooding.
"Another area of low pressure and its associated fronts are likely to affect the UK during Monday night and Tuesday, bringing a further spell of heavy rain and strong winds, particularly to southern areas.
"There remains considerably uncertainty in the track and timing of this low pressure system, but 10 to 20mm rainfall is likely quite widely, with over 30mm possible across parts of South Wales and southwest England. With ongoing flooding in some places, any further rain will only add to the problems. Very gusty winds may be an added hazard in places."
