SOUTH Parade Pier fish and chip shop The Boat Deck will be closed until the spring, it has announced.

It was forced to close last month after Portsmouth City Council shut the seafront attraction over safety fears.

Part of the pier was reopened to the public following an assessment on its structure but the restaurant remained closed. The Boat Deck’s owners have said the restaurant will be closed until work on the pier’s sub-structure has been carried out.
