The RNLI has confirmed it has stopped launching its lifeboats from Birnbeck pier in Weston-super-Mare. The charity has said the Victorian structure is simply too dangerous.
It was closed to the public in 1992 but the RNLI has continued launching. Lifeboat crews have been based on the pier for more than a hundred and thirty years. Robert Murphy reports.
