Fire at Eastbourne Pier

It’s a sad day for Eastbourne in East Sussex, England.

The main arcade area of the 144-year-old Eastboune Pier is gone and is just a skeleton after a fire that broke out yesterday. Despite the heavy damage, firefighters were at least able to save the furthest end of the pier.

Several Flickr members were in the area documenting the unfortunate events; you can find their photos in the “Eastbourne Pier” search results.
