Fashion retailer Morgan Taylor is set to close a Norfolk branch as the county’s high streets continue to struggle.

The King's Lynn store has started a closing down sale with an official date for closure yet to be announced.

It comes after research by retail analysts, Springboard, found shop vacancies in Norfolk had reached their highest level for three years, with one in twelve units left empty on the county's high streets.

They said: "All I know is we have had 14 weeks of a closing down sale and we don't have an end in sight."

The retailer operates five stores nationwide, with the other four located in Boston, Grimsby, Scunthorpe and Great Yarmouth.

Morgan Taylor's King's Lynn outlet opened in November 2016.
