Cornwall is bracing for another battering.

This time it will be 80mph winds - blowing in more rain on Tuesday afternoon.

There are still a string of flood alerts out for the Duchy - you can get the latest details here.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "Very strong winds and heavy rain will return to southwestern parts during Tuesday afternoon and evening, eventually spreading into some eastern  parts of Northern Ireland later in the evening. 

"Gusts of 60 to 70 mph are expected in many coastal areas, perhaps reaching 80 mph in the most exposed spots  Further inland, gusts of 50 to 60 mph are more likely. Strong winds may cause some disruption, particularly due to fallen trees. Large waves and high tides may again give rise to some coastal flooding.

"In addition, many places will see 10 to 20 mm of rain later on Tuesday, which may cause some additional flooding.

"The public should be aware of the potential for disruption due to this combination of weather hazards.

Yesterday evening a woman got trapped in her car alone on a flooded road in Cubert.

Fire crews were called at around 5.20pm to help get the vehicle to safety and shut the road off.

Officials are assessing the damage from the last lot of storms - which could hit £4m to fix.

Meanwhile, a man dressed in a suit has been snapped stood on the edge of Bude seapool as waves broke over his head.

Onlookers say the photo opportunity lasted for around 15 minutes before he dashed away.

It is being condemned by the RNLI, which is warning too many stormwatchers are putting their lives at risk.
