Eastbourne MP Stephen Lloyd has paid tribute to the efforts of the town’s firefighters and is praying that the pier is not completely destroyed.

“This is a dreadful event to happen to our lovely pier.

“I was working in my office which is only a couple of hundred yards away when at 3.30pm someone dame in and told me it was on fire. I rushed out and saw the whole roof on fire.

“ Quickly spoke with the fire service and police. Thank god it seemed no-one was harmed. I hope and pray that our wonderful pier is not lost for ever.

“I pay tribute to the fantastic work being done by our firefighters. Many of whom I know well and will share the town’s love of our pier.”
