The trust responsible for the management of Plantation Garden says it needs access restored to the site by next month.

It has been five weeks since the entrances to the popular Victorian garden off Earlham Road in Norwich were closed off.

MJB hotel owner Tony Burlingham said it was required in order for an underground survey to be carried out after a sinkhole opened at his nearby hotel.

But more than a month on from the garden's closure and underground probing work - needed for the site to reopen - is yet to take place.

Roger Connah, chairman of the Plantation Garden Preservation Trust, said: 'It's disappointing that we have been closed now for over five weeks and whilst the City Council arranged a test of our Garden in the first week, we are still waiting for action from MJB Hotels despite asking.'
