A popular pub on a station platform is set to re-open.
The award-winning Railway Arms, at Downham Market, closed last October.
Tenant Ian Pinches left after a rent dispute with landlord Great Northern, which runs train services to King's Lynn and London from Downham.
Now Great Northern says it is close to confirming a new tenancy, meaning thre pub will soon re-open.
A spokesman added: 'We are very pleased to announce there will be a new tenant taking on the lease of the existing coffee shop and pub at Downham Market station.
