Mystery continues over future of Wymondham Salerooms

A south Norfolk salerooms which closed earlier this year when taken over by a mystery buyer is not set to reopen for 'several months'.

The Wymondham Salerooms were launched at the Great Expectations Business Park off the old A11 at Suton in February.
