Two roads in Great Yarmouth and Gorleston have reopened following lengthy repairs.

Eight months after being closed for essential repairs, Gorleston's Baker Street has reopened to traffic in both directions.

The road was closed on September 8, 2021 following investigations by Anglian Water.

Underground cabling and pipework complicated repairs to a cracked sewer pipe, but Baker Street reopened on Thursday.

An Anglian Water spokesperson said: “This has been a complex repair which has required specialist equipment and a road closure in place. 

"The repair has now been completed and we are now finishing the final repairs to the road surface, this work will be completed by the end of this week."
