The sisters behind a Norfolk plant and gift shop are "devastated" after losing access to their Facebook page with 16,000 followers without warning.

Lisa Bolingbroke and Sarah Turcu started The Watering Can in 2018 as a stall at the end of Mrs Turcu's driveway in Spixworth.

As the business grew they moved to a converted cider shed outside The Red Lion pub in Coltishall in 2019 and then in 2021, they relocated to their current home at White House Farm in Sprowston.

They stock a range of gifts and indoor and outdoor plants and over the last six years grew their Facebook page to 16,000 followers.

However, on Good Friday, Mrs Bolingbroke discovered that she had lost access to her personal Facebook account and, in turn, her business one too, which her sister is also an admin of.

With no reason given or way of getting the page back, even though it is still active, they have started a new one called 'The Watering Can Norwich - Plant and Gift Shop'.

They are hoping to get their numbers back up as social media is vital to the business.

Mrs Bolingbroke said: "We are devastated as Facebook is where we get most of our business and showcase our new products.

"It has broken down our communication with our customers."

Meta, the parent company of Facebook, has been contacted for comment.
