    The incompetence of SBC beggers beliefe how often is the steele work painted to be protected how often is the steele checked who is the engineer in SBC who carrys the can for this, the east peir i now just a joke but this is hooking shocking infact its worse than that this wants sorting and sorting fast.

    Cant believe that you have lost another Pier in Whitby
    The Germans never did as much damage as SBC have done.
    Why dont we get lottery money doing these historic piers up.
    Why dont we see the BBC comeing with Anica Rice or that otherBob the Builder fellow and rebuild a bridge or even two.
    Maybe somebody can blow the new Redcar Helter Skelter Tower up and ship the waste rubble down the coast and strengthen Whitby Harbour before the whole Historic Town ends up in the North Sea.

    Well if they do the same as they did on the east pier there will be no gate to climb over. They just removed the bridge so that you cant get there.

    Its a very sad situation and I agree entirely with Paul , its been a platform that has given many anglers access to some top class angling
    for many years , sadly Whitby is overlooked by Scarborough council , for me it wouldnt be a huge job to make things good again as regards the bridge , but of course the authorities arent interested

    Surely the Scarborough council must realise that anglers and tourists flock to Whitby with its piers.
    They have Angling festivals and the Goth festivals with people attracted to these famous landmarks .
    Just seems crazy that they can sit in Scarbrough and watch it all being washed into the Sea without the Townsfolk haveing something to shout about their Sea Side Town.
    Maybe i should come and grab a piece of History before its all washed away.
    Remember some good nights fishing at the fist lifebelts box or i had success casting out wher their was two capstains together.
    Looks like Hendon Promanade will be the best place for me to head this winter if i fancy a chance with the cod and whiting . What a bloody shame.

    It would appear that Scarborough Councils Agenda is to run the town down. Just look at the state off neglect at the link below. Then think about the hideous metal sheeting they erected on the New Bridge bloccking one of the most beautiful views of the town. Theyre probably erecting diversion signs as we speak so that all people end up in Scarborough.

    Thats disgusting

    SBC got no money left they have spent it all on there bonus and dinner parties , SBC don't care about Whitby filey and surrounding villages as long as the road leading into Scarborough looks well for in-coming tourist.

    Re: First The East And Now The West - Another Pier Lost

    Its already happenning mate and i agree with you ,they made a right bol x of marine drive ,used to love fishing out of the back of the car and have had some big fish there over the years,i dont think the anglers will stop fishing whitby west as who will stop them,the people i feel sorry for most is the local tackle dealers who need the tourist trade to make a living and the poor law abiding anglers that dont want to break any rules by climbing over a railing thinking that they are doing something wrong,what is most annoying is knowing that they let it get to this state and then just close it off so everybody loses out,all i can say is scarboro borough, fk you very much!!! :angry:

    I hate to think what it would have cost your shop in lost spinner/bait/tackle sales had it gone up before the school holidays!

    I notice someone mentioned lottery money That may not be a bad idea i know its a long shot being in the north and all. But now its been on the news about the piers you never know you may stand a chance of extracting some brass from them got to be worth a shot if sbc aren't showing any interest in getting it sorted

    Re: First The East And Now The West - Another Pier Lost

    It really is a shocking disgrace. im furious over this, and its not like I even fish off the piers

    I encourage anyone to write to the MP, write to the gazette write a blog whatever in order to flag this up

    Too long have we sat on our collective arses and complained over the internet. I for one am going to be writing and requesting an answer from our local council and local MP as to when and if the pier will reopen and also when the damn east pier is going to be reopened......its like our harbour is losing its limbs
