A huge fire has ripped through a famous pier in one of Britain's most popular sea-side holiday spots.
The Grand Pier in Weston-Super-Mare, Somerset, has been partly destroyed in the blaze, which is thought to have started early on Monday.
Dozens of fire-fighters tackled the flames, which could be seen up to 50 miles away in Cardiff, Wales.
BBC reporter Nigel Dando said: "There'll be nothing left after this fire, it's a desperately sad scene."
No-one was hurt in the blaze and the cause of the fire is not yet known.
Bruce Watson, who works at a shopping centre opposite the pier, said the fire had devastated the partly wooden structure.
"It's just a shell virtually now, the flames are hundreds of feet high and the smoke into thousands of feet," he said.
This isn't the first time the pier has been burnt down - it took three years to rebuild after it was hit by fire back in 1930.
The pier, which is a quarter-of-a-mile-long, first opened more than 100 years ago, in 1904.
It attracts thousands of visitors every year and recently reopened after a massive revamp which saw a new funfair and go-kart track installed.
