Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, will visit the King's Lynn Innovation Centre next Friday.

The Duke, who is the UK's Special Representative for International Trade and Investment, will tour the centre on the Nar Ouse Regeneration Area.

The landmark £5m building, which officially opened in June 2016, offers office space, conference suites and super-fast broadband.

It was developed in partnership by West Norfolk council and the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership.

In September, West Norfolk council agreed to make an as-yet undislosed loan to Norfolk and Waveney Enterprise Services (NWES), which manages the building on Nar Ouse Way.

At the time Alistair Beales, the council's then deputy leader, said NWES had requested the loan to 'mitigate the cash flow implications' of delayed payment of grants from the European Regional Development Fund.
