Penzance driver escapes being washed away

A driver narrowly escaped being washed away as he crossed a flooded seaside road.

He was attempting to cross the Abbey Slip in Penzance, Cornwall, when waves whipped up by 65mph winds on Sunday stopped him in his tracks.

Mobile phone footage showed the car being buffeted by the waves before it reached safety on the other side.
