Caption: Construction vehicles repairing storm damage. After a week of high tides, storm surges and storm force winds, the sea front promenade of Aberystwyth, Wales, UK, was devastated, causing 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 stood for over 100 years. Filmed 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.
