An historic public garden is reopening today after a nearby sinkhole closed it two weeks ago.

The historic Plantation Gardens on Earlham Road in the city were evacuated after a hole opened up in the hotel next door.

The closure was essential whilst specialist engineers carried out an investigation.

We are so pleased to be open again, as the Spring planting is showing well and our magnificent Magnolia tree is still in full bloom. The reaction from the public and our members to the closure of the last two weeks has been very supportive and understanding...The timing of the closure was so sad in that we had announced only the day before that we have been awarded a Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £38,800 which will enhance the enjoyment of this special place and indeed the knowledge base of its history and wildlife.

– Roger Connah, Chairman of the Plantation Garden Preservation Trust

A visit to the Anglia region by the historic steam locomotive The Flying Scotsman has been cancelled after safety concerns.

The legendary locomotive was due to run a special excursion train from Ely to Norwich however the trip's been called off.

It's after thousands of pounds worth of delays were caused when people got too close to the tracks as the engine steamed through St Neots in Cambridgeshire in February.

It was feared the same might happen when the East Anglia trip was due to take place on 25 May.
