Norwich City flying high after scaffolding company replaces Ipswich colours on City Hall tower

It's another derby victory for Norwich City.
For weeks, City Hall's tower has been shrouded in blue and white sheeting - the colour of rivals Ipswich Town - to mask scaffolding as it undergoes repairs.
But today the Canaries are flying high again - thanks to the offending colours being replaced with green and yellow.
City Hall was the source of controversy last month over the choice of colours that cocooned the tower as it underwent 14 weeks of building work.

Those responsible were Narfold Scaffolding in Swaffham, working on the £200,000 City Hall project alongside Norwich City Council and Historic England, but they insisted blue and white were their company colours and not chosen because of allegiance to the Tractor Boys.
But Narfold Scaffolding contractor JB Specialist Refurbishments, based in Huntingdon, near Cambridge, which is working on the clock tower, changed the sheeting to yellow and green this week as the next stage of repairs gets underway.
Joe Brown tweeted: '#Norwich City Hall clock tower scaffolding draped in more Norwich-appropriate colours.'
