A cafe pavilion dogged by structural problems is back under scaffolding.

The curvy companion building to St George's Theatre in Great Yarmouth will remain open while more work is carried out and shows will be unaffected.

In a statement the borough council said: 'The contractor involved in the original construction of the St George's Pavilion building is undertaking maintenance works to the rainwater disposal facility.

'This is being undertaken under their contractual obligations and at their own costs.

'Materials appropriate to the building's character are being sourced and scaffolding has already been erected. 'Work will start on the building in due course. The facility will remain fully functional during the works.' The theatre's opening in 2012 was delayed because of problems with the pavilion and acts including comedian Tim Vine had to be staged elsewhere.
