Hastings Pier aiming to re-open in Spring 2015

The first new timbers are being laid on Hastings Pier as the multi-million pound renovation gathers momentum. It has already received a massive £11m boost from a heritage lottery grant.

The charity supervising the project is aiming raise another £500,000 via community shares priced between £100 and £20,000. Half that target has already been reached.

We look at the progress of work and talk to project engineer Peter Wheeler, construction manager David Spooner and Simon Opie from the Hastings Pier Charity.
