Cornwall has been battered by not one but TWO winter storms in the last week, cue some shocking photos.

Storms Ciara and Dennis caused flash flooding and widespread travel disruption across the Duchy.

However they also sparked MONSTER waves, sending photographers rushing to the coast.

Some of the footage captured at the height of the storms is incredible.

So Pirate FM has rounded up some of the most wild pictures and video, starting with those from Storm Ciara!
