Cornwall faces another clear up after high tides prompted floods along the south coast.

People in Looe and Mevagissey have been among the worst hit.

The Environment Agency says these are some of the highest tides of the year and they came at the same time as gale force winds.

Eleven firefighters have been pumping out homes and businesses on the square in Mevagissey. A spokesperson for Cornwall Fire and Rescue said: "Eleven firefighters from Mevagissey attended flooding in the town square. Crews assisted with preventing flood water entering properties, they helped with water removal from some businesses. Along with dealing with the flooding fire crews helped direct traffic through the town until Police were on scene."

In Looe locals saw wheelie bins floating in a foot of water.

There are still three flood warnings covering the entire Cornish coast on Thursday morning.
