End of the pier show will go on!

Staff at Cromer Pier are confident it will be reopen by Thursday after it was seriously damaged by last week's tidal surge.

There were fears for the town's Christmas show after holes appeared in the decking and waves entered the pavilion.

Emergency repairs have been taking place over the weekend following a structural survey and a temporary box office is being built in the bar.
