It comes after the Government relaxed some of the lockdown measures on Sunday, permitting people to take unlimited outdoor exercise.

Visitors to the pier are being asked to follow a new one way system to ensure social distancing is maintained.

A message from the Editor, Gary Shipton:

In order for us to continue to provide high quality and trusted local news, I am asking you to please purchase a copy of our newspapers.

With the coronavirus lockdown having a major impact on many of our local valued advertisers - and consequently the advertising that we receive - we are more reliant than ever on you helping us to provide you with news and information by buying a copy of our newspapers.

Our journalists are highly trained and our content is independently regulated by IPSO to some of the most rigorous standards in the world. But being your eyes and ears comes at a price. So we need your support more than ever to buy our newspapers during this crisis.

New markings on the ground

Stay safe, and best wishes.
