The steel forming the upper floors of the new pavilion has been installed and, although not yet waterproof, most of the roof sheeting has also been added.

Pier co-owner Kerry Michael said: "The weather is quite kind to us at the moment without much wind, however the cold temperatures mean we cannot pour concrete to create the floors.

"Hopefully, if we get a break in the weather next week, we can catch up then."

The large floating barge and crane have completed their work and have left the site.
