Part of Unthank Road in Norwich has reopened after Anglian Water closed it for repair work.

It was shut just south of York Street on Wednesday morning, and the work was set to continue until Friday, July 30.

Cones covered the road and a sign could be seen advertising the roadworks.

But as of 10:30am, the road has reopened and the workers have left the area.
