A fish and chip shop has closed its doors after 20 years in business.

Kelly's Plaice, in North Walsham's Market Place, shut for the final time on Saturday.

It first opened on November 1 in 2004 and quickly became a staple choice for locals in the town.

Alan Kelly, who ran the business with his family and their team of trusted staff, confirmed the business had been forced to close.

"We're sorry this has happened - we're totally gutted too," he said.

He added that North Norfolk MP Duncan Baker had been supporting him during this adjustment period and providing support.

It comes amid a number of changes in the town including the closure of the Cherished dementia charity shop in Market Street and the removal of the rocking horse from Memorial Park.

The future of the Kelly's Plaice premises currently remains unknown.
