The evacuation of Eastbourne Pier was so swift yesterday that apparently there are still many fishing rods, uneaten chips and lunches at the end of the pier where holidaymakers left them.

Experts say it is too unsafe to gain access to the pier at moment and it may be some time before they can assess the solidity of the structure.
