Barclays bank on Red Lion Street in Norwich has reopened after it was forced to close following a power surge.

The surge happened on Friday and the bank has been closed since.

Staff were outside redirecting customers to other city branches.

A Barclays spokesperson said: 'We apologise to our customers for the continued closure of our Red Lion Street branch (St Stephens) in Norwich. This is due to a power outage at the branch which means we are unable to open. We are working as fast as we can to resolve the issue and engineers are on site again today. Our staff are outside the branch and can advise customers of our nearest local branches, the closest of which is Whitefriars at 3 St James Court.'
