Falmouth Packet: Cornwall's storm bill tops £21million Cornwall's storm bill tops £21million

The latest estimate for the cost of the storms in Cornwall is more than £21 million, according to councillor Alex Folkes.

He said: "This is made up of £3.8 million for immediate response and making safe and £17.5 million for full repairs and remediation. But these are still preliminary estimates and are continuing to rise. In all probability they will rise again this weekend as yet more bad weather is forecast."

I enjoyed watching the sea from Peverell Terrace and the bottom of Salt Cellar Hill Porthleven again this morning until high tide, but will be pleased when all the storms have passed and repairs to local areas can take place. It seemed sad for the inner harbour to be completely void of boats and I found it a poignant reality of how in control the sea actually is.
