Eastbourne Pier has been handed back to its owner after investigators worked to establish the death of a worker.

The pier has been released back to its owner Cuerden Leisure.

It had been sealed off following the death of Stephen Penrice last week, who was working on the fire-damaged structure.

Sussex Police and the Health and Safety Executive have carried out a joint investigation.

The pier's amusement arcade was stripped to its skeleton by a severe fire on July 30.
