The footpath next to Kwik-Fit has been closed for two weeks after a number of tiles fell from the top of Grosvenor House into the alleyway.

The building is home to a number of businesses, some of which had to close for a short period of time after the rubble fell.

Norwich City Council confirmed that their health and safety team and highways team were not involved with the closure of the alleyway.

In March, Norwich City Council approved a planning application to turn Grosvenor House into 29 one-bed flats and 55 two-bed flats.
