Eastbourne Pier has been released back to the owner Cuerden Leisure this afternoon (August 26).

It had been sealed off after the tragic death of worker Stephen Penrice last week as Sussex Police and the Health and Safety Executive carried out a joint investigation.

Mr Penrice, 44, of Cumbria, fell from the pier on the afternoon of August 19 and was declared dead at the scene.
