Sad mourning for Hastings Pier
What a complete tragedy and a sorry end to a sorry affair. I was due to go up to Bexhill, East Sussex for a meeting on the 5th October only to be told I should divert because Hastings Pier had gone the way of the West Pier in Brighton and burnt down.
I exhibited prints of the area at McCarrons of Mercatoria in St. Leonards, so I know many people have a great deal of affection and pride in their locale and this will come as a bitter blow.
BBC News shows footage of the devastation.
