Traders have expressed relief as a main street reopens after a week of closure due to a dangerous building.
On Wednesday, September 11, Norwich Street in Fakenham was closed to vehicles and pedestrians after an inspection on Number Nine on the street declared it unsafe.
Janis Greenaway runs The Larder health food store, which was just outside the closed area. She said: "We initially panicked as they moved us out quite late on Wednesday, and we thought we would have to close the next day.
"Our trade wasn't too badly affected by the closure, but I'm pleased it's back open. I was told the street might have to be closed for short lengths of time in future, which obviously wouldn't help."
Tenants of three flats in the building are still unsure of their future, as they remain unable to safely return to their flats.
