Rough seas and strong winds have caused part of Brighton's ruined West Pier to collapse.

Part of the structure was washed away overnight, leaving the skeleton of the Grade I listed pavilion in two parts.

BBC South East's Mark Sanders spoke to Rachel Clark of the West Pier Trust and residents in Brighton.
