The section box of a former city police station has come up for sale - complete with permission to convert it into a residential home.

The former section box to Tuckswood police station on Hall Road in Norwich was built in the 1950s as a base for the bobbies who served the post-war homes of Tuckswood and Lakenham.

In 2020, the police building - along with the police station itself - was declared surplus to the force's needs and it was closed.

In 2021, it was put up for sale, along with the police station, for £330,000 - but it is now for sale as a single lot, priced at a guide of £150,000-£175,000 and with full permission to convert it into a single-storey home.

The plans suggest that, once complete, accommodation will include an open-plan living and dining space, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom - as well as a further 'box room' which could become a small bedroom or study.
