Overnight rough seas damaged yachts and fishing boats at the Paphos harbour with locals complaining nothing had been done over the years to protect it.

Owners and workers had to scramble in the early morning hours to secure boats whose ropes were cut because of rough seas and strong winds.

The boats crashed into the pier and into each other sustaining damage.

The spokesman of the ferry association said a new pier had to be constructed and the harbour deepened, as it did not offer any protection.
