A total of £468,954 of insurance money has finally been received by North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) after Cromer Pier was damaged in a storm surge in 2013.
A storm surge causing heavy seas in December 2013 smashed the pier's decking and broke inspection hatches.
Now, the council has said it has received money back after filing an insurance claim when the damage was first done.
The money comes after NNDC, in September 2018, recommended that £400,000-worth of repairs to the pier were completed, calling them vital.
The work saw the underneath of the structure strengthened and was completed alongside a £275,000 roof project.

The council has said the insurance money will be earmarked for future pier work.
