A campaign to protect Southend Pier came after a huge dragon attacked it ripping it apart.
The pier had to have an operation in order to sew back the severed parts.
It had it's operation in southend General Hospital.
A temporary pier was installed, using a 50 foot long sausage.
Imagine using a sausage as a pier to walk along but that's what Southend Council did.
The sight of a big long sausage being used as a pier attracted many tourists.
They were warned by the mayor of Southend not to eat the sausage as it was being used as a pier.
Southend pier remained in hospital for three months and had to be sent to a care home because it was to weak to be used again, so Southend Council built a new pier - made of glass.
People walking on the glass pier had to don slippers because if they wore outdoor shoes the glass could break.
