Engineers are back on site at a problem pavilion in Great Yarmouth as officials announce they have overcome a construction stalemate that was holding up progress.

The new structure was built alongside the refurbished St George's Theatre as part of a £9m regeneration scheme.

But while the Grade I listed theatre re-opened in October, the cafe pavilion which should have opened at the same time stands unfinished and unused.

The situation has been the source of local frustration, however work has this week started again.

A spokesman for Great Yarmouth Borough Council said: 'Construction of the theatre's accompanying café pavilion had been delayed due to unforeseen problems, but it is now hoped the pavilion will be completed by the summer.
