    i took this photo from up near the whale bones on an old mobile phone, the phone adjusted the light settings itself which i think gives a dramatic effect, it was only 3.2 mega pixel, i think it almost looks like its an old painting!
    anyways i'll let you guys decide

    after giving it some thought, i think what look like people are actually the life belts attached to the pier railings,
    also that day the police and coastguard were out not letting folk anywhere near the sea, i found a bit of video from my phone i'll post soon showing how rough the sea was.
    i think this was the day that the boat tradegy also happened, possibly the day after, but the next night you couldn't swing a rod let alone a cat on the west pier for the the amount of guys fishing (after climbing over the storm gates) plus nobody could hold ground in the tide,it was a tangle fest, i do recall one geezer on the pier with a rod stand set up. i didn't see anybody catch anything apart from each other that night
