Cromer pier reopened for business today almost a week after being damaged in storms and heavy seas.

There is now full access to the Pavilion Theatre, although some areas of the pier will remain fenced off until additional repairs have been finished.

Bosses at North Norfolk District Council, which owns and is responsible for the maintenance of the pier, said they would commission this additional work as soon as possible.

Ian Hall, general manager for Openwide International, the company which manages the Pavilion Theatre and the pier, said: “I am pleased to say that we are now open for business once again.

“This last week has been very difficult for us and I wish to pass on my sincere thanks to North Norfolk District Council and their contractors for their prompt response and hard work over the past few days.

“I am very pleased to report that despite all the problems we managed to keep the box office open so we were still able to take bookings for Christmas Seaside Special.”
