Large scale destruction at Penzance, latest storm wreaks damage along promenade

I had seen the images on Friday night (14/02/14) of Penzance/Newlyn, I was in Porthleven at the time but I went down to have a look the morning after. Just amazing the power of nature when it is unleashed, although unfortunate it is material damage that can be rectified. Hope the pictures can give you a scale of the impact the latest storm had!

Huge stones from the promenade wall, have been lifted and deposited on the prom/road

No chance for the phonebox
