Repairs are needed after strong waves caused damage to Deal Pier

By Emily Stott

Wave damage has struck Deal Pier leaving many of the boards on the lower deck destroyed.

Tony Friend, from Deal, took a video of the scene as large waves ripped through the lower deck, causing the boards to disintegrate into the sea and letting water leak through onto the pier.

The boards will now need to be replaced.

He said: “Many of the boards have now gone due to the waves.”

Mr Friend shot the footage on Thursday this week.

 

Dover District Council which owns the pier said repairs would be made soon.

A DDC spokesman said: “We are aware of some recent wave damage to the boarding on the lower deck at Deal Pier, and we are making arrangements for repairs to be carried out over the next few days.”
