Drone video footage has captured the rubbled remains of Great Yarmouth’s now fully-demolished Marina Centre along the seafront.
There had been initial concerns that work on the centre would cause congestion and disruption to the seafront’s tourist attractions, but, as the country entered lockdown in March, they did not materialise.
Instead, work has been allowed to go on largely uninterrupted.
In a statement, Great Yarmouth Borough Council said: “The government has been clear that building work can continue during this time, providing contractors follow appropriate additional health and safety measures.
Looking to the future, the council said “the project team is progressing through the procurement process to appoint a main contractor this summer”.
A £26m investment will see a new leisure centre complex, set with gym, climbing wall, pools and a cafe, take the Marina Centre’s place in due course.
