A bus stop at the centre of a stink in Cromer is not to be removed after the town's mayor intervened.

Last year we reported that faeces found at the Mill Road shelter not believed to belong to a dog.

And Cromer Town Council's works and general purposes committee agreed to remove the shelter after complaints that it had fallen into a state of disrepair.

But mayor Tim Adams, who pointed out the council employed a cleaning contractor, questioned the decision to demolish it before a replacement could be found.

He pointed out a survey of residents found that the Mill Road bus shelter was well used and there was support for it to remain.

Councillor David Pritchard, who chairs the committee, explained the cost of a new shelter was estimated at £6890.

However, this week, members heard the committee agreed to repair the shelter and remove the bench at a cost of £1795.
