The Valentine's Day storm saw huge waves crash into Porthleven Harbour sending white foam everywhere creating what looked like a snow storm.

Onlookers gathered to watch last night as water poured over the harbour walls on to the roads.

A car parked on Harbour Road was nearly pulled into the sea by the force of the waves.

James Kitto, a Porthleven resident, witnessed the storm.

He said: "I have never seen waves like it.They were coming over the top of the clock tower which was amazing to see. It was like something from a movie."

Later the spume from the waves was blown across the road, giving the whole area a white coating.

Mr Kitto said: "It was everywhere. People were trudging through it. It was all very dramatic, we've never seen conditions like it."
