Councillors in Conwy will be discussing the future of Colwyn Bay's Victorian Pier this morning.

There are a number of options to be considered with demolition the most radical.

It's been estimated that it would cost up to £15 million pound to restore it.

The issue has been dogged by controversy with a simmering dispute over ownership between the council and the pier's former owner Steve Hunt.

This morning a small band of pier supporters gathered outside the council chamber calling for the pier to be saved.
