Hastings Pier: Memories of a golden age

The new-look Hastings Pier has reopened, triggering a wave of nostalgia among people who remember it in its heyday.

The old pier was a key part of the town's attraction to tourists and local residents alike - something its new owners hope the £14.2m replacement can also become.

As the gates opened on a new era for the town and its pier, viewers of BBC South East have been sending in their pictorial memories of a golden age.
