The jingle of slot machines could be coming to a busy high street as a leisure company bids to open an adult gaming centre.

MJS Amusements Ltd has applied to Great Yarmouth Borough Council to change the use of a premises on Gorleston High Street.

This would include a premises licence issued under the Gambling Act.

The building has been vacant for at least a year, having formerly traded as clothing store New Look.

According to the application, the business would have four full-time and two part-time employees and would open every day from 8am to 10pm.
