Owner of Eastbourne pier criticised over 'vivid' new look

The new owner of Eastbourne Pier has been ordered to halt work after giving the grade 2 listed structure a 'vivid' new look.

There have been complaints about Sheikh Abid Gulzar's decision to install gold-painted domes on the Victorian pier - which has been done without planning permission.

However, speaking to ITV News Meridian, Sheikh Abid Gulzar said the colour scheme 'worked well' and was popular with the public.
