Hastings Pier Burns Down

I am heartbroken. This is my hometown.
Hastings Pier is in Hastings, E.Sussex, England. Built in 1872, it suffered major storm damage in 1990, and closed to the public between 1999 and 2002, then closed again from 2006. In the early hours of yesterday morning, the pier suffered from a devastating fire (the second in its history) which has destroyed 95% of its superstructure. Pending a structural survey, the substructure may be salvageable.
