ITV Granada in town as council grilled over Southport Pier

15th August 2023

Broadcast news cameras were in Southport this morning as the council faced a grilling over the future of Southport Pier.

ITV news crews were pictured interviewing council cabinet member Marion Atkinson on the Pier this morning.

The broadcast is expected to be played out tonight on the evening news.

There’s still no word about the publication of the much awaited structural survey report which is due to expose the series of issues befalling the Pier.

The Pier has been shut since December 2022 after the council claimed bad weather made the structure too dangerous to walk on.
