A storm-hit village posts a video online insisting Cornwall is open for business.

Boats are sailing in and out of Porthleven for the first time since huge waves wrecked parts of the harbour.

The film is urging visitors not to turn their backs this Easter.

At the time Jo Booker from the Harbour and Dock Company said locals pulled together: "The wooden bulks that actually protect the inner harbour were sadly broken, which caused the water in the inner harbour to rise above levels that we don't usually have and created a huge swell which subsequently damaged quite a lot of the boats. Unfortunately we lost seven boats in the harbour.

"The buildings around the harbour have remained pretty much unscathed. A couple of our commercial tenants have experienced problems with windows etc. so on the whole it's been a pretty difficult time but everybody has rallied together."
