The fate of Birnbeck Pier's dangerous north jetty will be decided today (Wednesday), as councillors in Weston-super-Mare vote on whether to demolish the structure or not.

North Somerset Council’s planning and regulatory committee will make the jetty decision at a meeting this afternoon.

Council officers have recommended it is demolished after it was badly damaged in storms last year, but Weston Town Council objected to the proposal in August.

Other decision on the agenda include plans for more than 5,000 extra car parking spaces at Bristol Airport, and a proposal to build a new science block at Priory Community School in Worle.
