The former home of a popular American diner has been snapped up following strong interest.

The Yankee Traveller had been trading in King Street, Great Yarmouth, for more than 45 years when it shut suddenly over Christmas.

A businessman completed the purchase of the building on Friday, August 2.

The three-storey property which can seat 64 people was on the market with East Commercial with a price tag of £129,995.

Agency manager at East Commercial, Hamish Duncan, said the building had attracted a lot of interest since it went up for sale in May.
