How can you ban the general public from the pier on safety grounds but then still allow anglers access
Surely it is either safe or unsafe.
Or does the couple of quid charged to the anglers really make everything all right ?
Its time that some form of national funding was put in place to ensure the survival of the many piers around our coastline. They are part of our heritage. I would hate to see Southsea Pier go the same way that other piers, such as those of Brighton and Hastings Piers.
Southsea Pier has so far withstood the ravages of time and also Ken Russell’s attempt during the filming of the movie version of The Who’s Tommy.
