Steve Brien took this picture of one of the containers washed-up on shore which shows the damage to its cargo of cars.
Chris Stevens: "Fences were brought in to help control Branscombe Beach. People were clambering into half-submerged containers to search for valuables...
...Police have had to resort to focing open looters' cars, which have brought many of the backlanes around Branscombe to a stand still."
Alongside the container crates, dozens of wooden barrels also washed ashore. Picture by Ian Pain
David Fothegill: "It's a very long coast path when you're rolling a barrell!"
David Fothergill also sent this picture of young men taking car parts from the beach, made to take the coastal path with two miles still to go.
