Images of Norwich’s famous lanes have been spotted in the Thai capital of Bangkok.

Retired businessman Justin Lambe, a die-hard Canaries fan currently living in the South-East-Asian city, noticed the images whilst out and about in Bangkok earlier this month.

The 44-year-old then shared the familiar images of Lower Goat Lane in Norwich on Twitter.

They appear to be covering up a refurbishment of a former 7/11 convenience store in the Ratchayothin area of Bangkok.

It is not yet known why the photos - which show the Norwich Lanes in previous years - have been specifically chosen for this purpose.

“I had to do a double take when I saw it,” said Mr Lambe. “I recognised my hometown straight away.”

He also said that images of a London arcade have been used alongside the Norwich pictures.

Earlier this year a former Great Yarmouth bus was spotted in Bangkok. It was being used to people to mourn the former King of Thailand.
