Wall takes another hit
A LARGE chunk of the harbour wall at Lamorna has been smashed away by the ferocious waves.
The latest damage comes after storms last month pulled away part of the historic harbour wall.
The crashing waves last week also caused a considerable amount of damage elsewhere in the cove – the shed doors by the slipway were all ripped off, the terrace of the Lamorna Cove café was severely damaged, areas of surfacing in and below the car park were swept away and storm surges deposited large rocks and stones all the across the car park.
Daniel Stevenson, from the café, said that several cars had lucky escapes.
"People were driving down here to have a look at things between the gaps when the waves were coming in," he said.
"We managed to get one lady to drive off just in time because as she drove away the waves came in and lifted up the back of the car. Two other cars floated around in the car park and another turned around completely."
Mr Stevenson said that the roof to his terrace had been battered by waves and that the terrace area of the café had completely filled up with water to the height of the three-foot surrounding wall.
