'We thought we'd lost everything', says Cornwall shop owner

The outer harbour in Porthleven, Cornwall, has been breached by storms, with further bad weather expected.

Lucy Page, owner of the shop Nauti but Ice, explained that the storms forced her business to close after the waves "went straight through" the shop doors.

"We thought we'd lost everything," she added.

Local fisherman Jeremy Richards explained that the storms also forced boats in the harbour to be pulled underwater.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Friday 7 February.
