Part of the seafront at Teignmouth since the 1860s, the iconic pier is re-opening after 5 months of repair work. The pier was hit hard by the storms in February and the owners have been working around the clock to repair the damage. Huge waves punched a hole through the wooden floorboards and slot machines were tossed onto their sides.

Speaking to ITV West Country this morning, Nick Brenner said 'it's been a very busy past few days to get everything in order for today.'

The building, which has been in the Brenner family since 1962, has been transformed with new retail units and new machines.
