If this has sparked a memory, why not share it here?

I remember that, I was doing my paper round, knee deep in snow , heard such a noise only to see the end of the pier disappearing in to the sea, I also remember the sea was frozen in parts Diana shilton (nee west)
My parents moved to Bognor in 1961 when I was 14. I remember when half of the pier was washed away after a terrible winter storm. The beach was piled with wood from it and it all disappeared in a day! Bognor was left with just a pier head and a short jetty that led nowhere. I don't think they've ever rebuilt it.
