People on Worthing seafront were watching in wonder as waves battered Worthing Pier in high winds.
At 11am this morning, high tide saw waves reaching the top of the pier and on occasions breaking through the boards.
Passers-by could not help stopping to watch as the waves rolled in.
The gulls on the beach did not look too impressed though! See how they react at the end of the video.
The pier remains open at this point in time.
