Eastbourne Pier On Fire

Postby Bob » 30 Jul 2014, 17:47

A major fire has broken out on Eastbourne Pier which has been evacuated. It looks as if it has major damage and may not survive

It seems the Fire Brigade got there quite quickly but were severely hampered by access. They good not get suitable fire fighting equipment to the fire so had to resort to fire hoses which could not reach the seat of the fire. They needed an aerial platform but could not get one onto the pier of the beach to fight it
