Cornish schoolchildren have been shortlisted for a film award in the wake of the storms.

Pupils at Fourlanesend in Torpoint have made a short film on marine litter to help raise money to repair the clock tower at Kingsand.

It was pummelled and nearly destroyed by massive waves in February.

Now 'Marine Heroes' is up for an EU award.

Clive from the Parish Council backed it: "The film is to do with the rubbish that comes up on the beach and the general detritus; everything they're doing is in everybody's interest in our opinion.

"They've done a wonderful job, they've made a wonderful film and we are very proud of them."
