• Simon Jenkins blames Brighton and Hove city council for the West Pier ”left to rot in the sea” (Comment, 24 January), but the West Pier does not belong to the council, it belongs to the penniless West Pier Trust. Jenkins describes the remains of the pier as an eyesore, but some of us love it as a giant bird cage, a dramatic piece of sculpture in the sea.
