Cornwall gets another seven million pounds to fix storm damage.

But the council warns a total of £17m from the government still won't be enough to cover the cost.

It is after they dished out an extra £7m for the repairs.

Work is being carried out in Kingsand, Bude, Porthleven, Penzance and Newlyn.

Some should be completed in time for summer.

But there is still a £3m shortfall.

John Pollard from County Hall tells the Westcountry Tonight it will mean some can be done more quickly, he said: "We needed £21m to do the whole job, it would have been better for us if we didn't have to go through the hoops of the negotiations, discussions and applications, but we have got most of what we asked for.

"We know because we saw it on television, that he [David Cameron] uttered those words that money is no object, but clearly money is always an object and clearly there is still a shortfall."
