A vacant BHS store has been sold to a unknown buyer.
The former Great Yarmouth BHS store was sold prior to an auction held in London today.
The Regent Road store has been empty since the department store chain went into administration last year.
It is not yet known who has bought the site or how much it sold for, but the sign showing the building was up for auction has already been taken down.
The prominent building was to be auctioned by Allsop LLP Commercial with a guide price of up to £700,000.
