A huge storm on 29th December 2002 resulted in the dramatic collapse of the south east corner of the Concert Hall!!
On 28th March 2003 the Pavilion was destroyed in an arson attack, and on 11th May 2003 the Concert Hall also was burnt out deliberately!!
This today is whats left of the West Pier in Brighton, slowly erroding away, and I doupt it will be that long now before this is just a memory.
