Doomed pier bosses in the South West town of Weston Super Mare have revealed their latest weapon in a bid to attract customers back to the surviving portion of the Victorian structure – a Dalek!
However – who can say whether the Dalek wasn’t indeed the perpatrator of the arson?
Seriously though, if you’re in the Weston area, do drop in and offer your support. Seaside towns are increasingly beleagured in this day and age with opportunities for locals working in the towns becoming more and more limited.
The Dalek – which has been "zooming around" the pier entrance – was loaned to pier owners Kerry and Michelle Michael in order to re-launch the pier and greet guests.
Is there any limit to the power of Doctor Who?
