Part of Colwyn Bay's derelict Victoria Pier has collapsed into the sea.
Conwy Council confirmed a section of the balustrade at the lower end of the pier had collapsed.
As owner of the pier, the Council says it is responsible for the clearance, and that, "contractors have been mobilised to make the area safe; to remove the fallen pieces and salvage materials wherever possible, starting at low tide tomorrow morning."
Campaigners hoping to save it from demolition recently unveiled plans to show what the regenerated Victoria Pier could look like.

Time is running out to save the pier, with the team hoping to save the pier from demolition working on establishing a viable business plan to present to Conwy Council.
A long-running legal dispute went to the High Court, establishing the council as owners of the pier.
A previous attempt to demolish the pier was rejected by the Welsh Government in 2015.
