Stormy weather hits the Plymouth Hoe in the run up to Christmas 2013

Plymouth Hoe Storms 2013 - photo Hannah Gow huge wavesA huge storm roared into Plymouth on Monday 23rd December 2013.

I was in the area at the time so I attempted a walk up to the Plymouth Hoe Parade, but quickly turned back after only making it as far as the War Memorials. At one point I had to duck behind one of the statues due to the frequent 70mph+ gusts.

Our social media reporter Hannah Gow took a series of shots, uploading them to twitter. They featured in the local Plymouth Herald news paper and also on the BBC News website here :).

You can see a few photos taken by Hannah and Jason Kiely who was around at the time. Also a short video I took of the wind / rain can below:
