Sadly many of our once proud seaside piers have seen better days. But in Bournemouth they're breathing new life into their iconic structure with a new extreme attraction - the world's first pier-to-shore zipwire.
Thousands of computers have been exposed to a virus after they received a scam email about booking tickets to see a pantomime in Bournemouth this Christmas.

More details shortly.
