CLEAN-up work was under way in St Ives this week as a lull in the storms gave residents and business owners a chance to patch up and mend.

Large amounts of sand along Wharf Road needed clearing and doors and windows needed cleaning and in many cases repainting.

Windows were also broken either by the force of the waves or the pebbles they picked up.

The far end of the road remained closed for much of Sunday due to the amount of sand left by the storm surge.

The main sign on the front of The Sloop was blown off by 80mph gusts and many homes and businesses were keeping sandbags across their doors.

With more storms predicted by the Met Office for the weekend, it was easy to see why.
