While extra spaces are being created, the north Norfolk market town, which is known for its range of independent shops and is popular with the Royal family, is continuing to stop visitors in their tracks.

Internet giant Google has released an updated virtual reality Street View of Holt which offers web browsers a 360 degree view of the town.

However, its cameras have, unfortunately for one person at least, captured a mishap by a motorist who crashed in the town centre.

An Audi is photographed having wiped out a wall in the pay and display car park next to Budgens from last summer.
