Work has started on dismantling the partially collapsed Colwyn Bay pier.
Parts of the seaward end of the Grade II listed structure collapsed last month – more damage was caused during last week’s Storm Doris after Conwy County Council voted to carry out emergency work.
The council say contractors will disconnect the collapsed section from the pier itself and clear the fallen parts of the structure before the rest of the seaward section is dismantled. The work is expected to take up to three weeks to complete.
Security fencing damaged during the storm was replaced and repaired on Monday and Tuesday while specialist equipment was delivered to workers based at the end of the promenade.
The council says it will keep the heritage body Cadw and the Health and Safety Executive aware of progress. They also repeated their warning for the public to keep a safe distance away from the pier.
