2014 was a busy year across Cornwall with major national news stories breaking regularly - not least because of the battering the Duchy took from the winter storms.

We have been having a look back at some of our 'most read' articles from the year. Perhaps not surprisingly the stormms and the trail of damage they left dominated:

1. Winter Storms. After a Christmas of wind and rain and the onslaught of 'Hercules' in January Cornwall thought it was over the worst. Then February arrived.

2. Valentine's Day Storms. Valentine's Day was the culmination of the extreme weather, wreaking damage from Looe to Penzance to Bude.

3. Mawgan Porth Tragedy. Tragedy strikes in October. Three people lost their lives in Mawgan Porth after dashing into the waves to try and help four surfers caught in a rip.    

4. Looe Coach Crash. In May, two pensioners lose their lives after a coach crash near Looe. The day-trippers were on their way to the harbour for fish and chips when it happened.

5. Giant Spiders. With September comes a warning of giant spiders invading our homes.
