Caption: After a week of high tides, storm surges and storm force winds, the sea front promenade of Aberystwyth in Wales has been devastated, with millions of pounds of damage. The crashing waves punched a large hole in the sea wall and has collapsed Aberystwyth's iconic, Victorian promenade shelter, which has stood for over 100 years. This picture was taken on Wednesday 8th January, 2014, the day the council started to try and clear the thousands of tonnes of beach rubble off the sea front road. Here paving slabs have been ripped up and tossed 30 feet across the street.
