The waves in the sleepy port have been particularly violent over past weeks, with huge waves battering the coastline homes and roads as winds reached 70mph.
Just last week, severe winds caused police to close the road which runs alongside the harbour to cars for the safety of the public, yet people risked their lived standing just inches away from the sea.
“What surprised and shocked me is people were standing in places that I would only ever think about standing on with the tide out and the sea calm.” said Cllr Wallis.
“These people must have left their brains somewhere else, or how else can you explain the sheer stupidity of their actions. They are not only putting their lives in danger, but also those of the Coastguards, RNLI and Royal Navy personnel who will attempt in almost any condition to save you.”
