Ongoing construction work on a new seaside inspired shelter at Cromer bus station is nearing completion.

Passengers should soon be able to rest their legs at the eye-catching shelter, which features a mesh gabion wall filled with boulders.

Green fingered Cromer in Bloom members are creating garden areas featuring grass plants and wood from the remnants of old sea defences.

A contemporary style glass roof will be installed over the structure at the bus station on Cadogan Road

The £10,000 shelter has been jointly funded by Cromer Town Council and Norfolk County Council. It stands on the site of the demolished tourist information building.

Bus shelter architect and Cromer in Bloom chairman Jim Bond said: 'The same amount of money could have been spent on something with a standard design and instead we have a shelter that is a bit more bespoke and individual with a seaside theme.

'The bus station was looking a bit little scruffy so this is a much needed make-over.
