A long serving pet shop is set to be auctioned off next month.

The mixed use property on Bevan Street East in Lowestoft - which "has been a pet shop for many years" - is set to come up for auction once more.

It comes after the shop - not far away from Lowestoft town centre - had failed to sell at a previous online property auction in November, and was "postponed prior" to another auction in February.
