My letter to the Argus on Wednesday 5 July 2006 about not doing away with the West Pier. Letter: Make it a reef: Brighton and Hove City Council is talking about removing what's left of the West Pier at great expense. Other seaside resorts are busy sinking redundant ships and even old bin lorries into the sea to create reefs for wildlife and divers. Why not just tidy up the shore-end of the wreck and leave the rest as a romantic ruin above the waves and a haven for sealife below it? We've become used to the old dear and you'd never consider carting off what remains of Stonehenge to the scrapyard, now would you? Alan (Fred) Pipes, Brighton"
