Scenic dread from latest Britain news

What's the latest?
May be this news from providess the answer:
Storms battered parts of Britain again yesterday - and closed one of the country's most popular race meetings.

The Cheltenham Gold Cup festival was abandoned as gales up to 85mph lashed western areas.

The news article was mainly reporting the cancellation of the racing but it also included the following rip-roaring pictures:
This scene at the Blackpool sea front:
And this crashing waves on to a lighthouse in Newhaven, East Sussex
And this one at Porthleven, Devon:
All the hats tip to the photographers. As much as I would like to see roaring waves, I certainly will not wish to be out there when all those wave things are indeed roaring.
