It is hoped Charles and Camilla's visit to Cornwall will highlight the help that is still needed after the storms.

The royal couple have visited businesses hit by floods in Looe, as they start a three day trip to the south west.

Michelle Sadler runs the Old Sail Loft. She told Pirate FM: "It's more positive publicity we can get for the area, it does highlight obviously that we do have problems, but as a community and as an area we do get on with it and we are a strong community. It's brilliant. It's a once in a lifetime for the kids as well and the whole community has got involved.

"I was told I wasn't allowed to put my waders on, I had to wear a dress and shoes instead! But he is aware that these problems are happening and I think it's great that he sees how strong our community is and that we get on with it."

The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall are also stopping off in Liskeard before heading to Lostwithiel.


Cornish Orchards MD Andy Atkinson said: "It's great for the staff, it's a good fun day for us all, we're all thoroughly enjoying it, the business will hopefully be fairly high profile today from this.

"The local drinks and the local food produce, the agriculture, all supports the great vistas, scenery, attractions that we have here, it's just a wonderful collection of enjoyable moments when you come down on holiday."
