£100m needed to stop Brighton & Hove seafront arches from collapsing

This morning I read a story online about the seafront arches in Brighton. I had no idea they were in such a bad state of repair but although I haven’t been along this way for a while I do have very happy childhood memories of this part of town.

The newspaper article states that Brighton and Hove’s iconic seafront needs up to £100 million worth of repairs because of fears it could collapse. Brighton and Hove City Council has revealed it has major concerns about the safety of the arches and is looking into ways of funding a scheme in order to keep the arches open.
