VIDEO: Huge storm surge blasts Perranporth
This is the moment a powerful storm surge washed into the beachside car park in Perranporth with the connecting bridge barely visible through the whitewash.
The video was shot yesterday morning at around 7.40am, around an hour before high tide was due to hit.
