A taste of the 1950s was brought to a Norwich shopping centre today when a new restaurant chain opened in the city.
Up to 40 new jobs have been created after Ed's Easy Diner opened in Chapelfield shopping centre.
The 1950s-style diner, in the centre's food court, is the 12th to be opened by the chain, which has restaurants in cities including London, Cardiff, Birmingham and Leicester.
The themed restaurants include neon lights and a soundtrack of 1950s rock 'n' roll courtesy of replica juke boxes.
The diner employs 30 full-time and 10 part-time staff and a number of the staff have been found through the company working with a charity called Springboard.
