Poor weather hits Newlyn and Penzance as gale force winds lash Mount's Bay.

Saturday's weather is poor enough; ahead of storm Irene the fishing fleet of Newlyn is already weather-bound. The gill netter Karen of Ladram lands her fish to the market as the French trawler Alexandra runs into the port to escape from the heavy seas. Penzance promenade is lashed by by waves as the Isles of Scilly supply ferry Gry Maritha rolls her way into Penzance Dock.
