Hastings Pier restoration aided by barge arrival
A barge and crane have arrived at Hastings Pier to provide a base for work on the structure ravaged by a fire in October 2010.
The derelict pier, which was further damaged by storms in February, is undergoing a £14m restoration.
Workmen will demolish the ballroom and use the barge as a platform from which to install new steel work and columns.
Almost 40% of the restoration work has been completed. The Hastings Pier Trust hopes to reopen the pier next summer.
