Roots coffee shop on Pottergate closed for five weeks over the Christmas period while undergoing a complete revamp and rebranding.

On Friday, February 2 the business reopened as Rabbit.

Owner, Claire Yaxley revealed the change was due to a desire to 'start afresh'.

The 34-year-old from Norwich said: 'I set up the business five years ago with a business partner, then I left, but returned 18 months ago.
