A Victorian Pier off the coast of Suffolk is up for sale in a bid to make it community owned.

Shares in Shotley Pier near Harwich go on sale later with a minimum investment of £50 buying you your very own bit of history.

Shotley Heritage Community Benefit Society is managing the project and say £100,000 needs to be raised to buy the pier, with an extra £30,000 needed for immediate safety repairs.
