There was some concern that high waves had damaged the structure.

Lisa Sutcliffe, manager at the nearby Beachcomber cafe said: "The pier has taken a battering, it looks as if a strut has been damaged and water is coming up through. It looks a bit sorry for itself."

A severe weather warning has been declared in South Devon - meaning a risk to life.
