£3m fund to turn tide of deprivation in seaside towns

Coastal minister Penny Mordaunt is set to announce a £3m investment programme for Britain's seaside towns, with the money going towards the restoration of a series of historic piers, lidos and proms. Weston Birnbeck Pier, Bognor Pier, Herne Bay Pier and Swanage Pier are some of the structures that could benefit, Ms Mordaunt said. More than £1m will also be provided to fund 100 local teams to tackle problems in coastal towns, with Office for National Statistics data previously indicating that seaside resorts are among the most deprived parts of the country, suffering from high unemployment, poor health and crime.
