Eastbourne Pier, the day after the fire....even the fox looks sad.

Eastbourne pier was opened in 1870 and on Wednesday 30th July 2014 suffered a major fire.

The fire started around 3pm in an amusement arcade towards the front end of the pier. The pier is owned currently by Cuerden Leisure; it had an amusement arcade, a night club and numerous retail outlets as well as being a popular fishing platform.
