Conwy County Borough Council's plans to restore Colwyn Bay's Victoria Pier have been given a boost by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The award of a £594,900 development grant is part of a wider £56 million regeneration of the town.

The Grade II listed pier's pavilion has hosted performances from artists as diverse as Morecambe and Wise, Harry Secombe and Elvis Costello.
