South-west ports that were battered by the winter storms have been given a huge cash boost.

The government is investing 1.7 million pounds to help fix the damage caused by huge waves and 90mph gales.

The money will be used to repair the harbours at Bude, Mousehole, Newlyn, Penzance, Porthleven, Portreath, Portwrinkle, St Ives, Newquay and Par.

Five other projects in Devon will also be given a share of the funds.
