A car park operator has expressed interest in purchasing the fire-hit site Regent Bowl and Indoor Market Place in Great Yarmouth.

Napier Parking, which most locally has a car park in King’s Lynn, got in touch with the Mercury to get contact details for the site’s owner Phil Thompson.

It was with the interest in purchasing the site to become a pay and display car park.

Mr Thompson has said he is not interested in selling the site.

The idea of the site becoming a car park was suggested weeks after the blaze by the mayor of Great Yarmouth, councillor Malcolm Bird, who said it might be a temporary option until finances were gathered to re-build the site.

Mr Thompson said he has been away from the site during its demolition and is waiting to hear back from insurers before a decision can be made on what the next steps will be.
