Whilst the rest of the country is deep in snow, balmy (!) Torquay was in the grip of an easterly gale which produced some great waves across Torbay.
The following is a video taken (by Discovery Holiday Homes staff) at about 10.30, the temperature was just over freezing and the road was closed. No one was swimming, surprisingly!
The picture below shows Meadfoot beach on a quieter day!
