There are calls for a full investigation into Cornwall's floods.

Locals in Newlyn are among those clearing up for the second time in four months.

It is after torrents of water swept through the village

Viv runs the chippy and says it never used to be like this.

She wants to know what has changed: "it's a horrendous worry. You do feel just like locking the shop up and going. It just costs thousands. I still haven't been settled from the last claim so it just puts a terrible strain on businesses and of course you've got our insurers saying they won't insure us against flood."

"With less than 24 hours rain we're having this horrific flooding. It's continual. The river is running high all the time. I'm really concerned that something is amiss causing this horrendous flooding problem because we're just not used to it."
