A �2.3m hotel was officially opened in Lowestoft this morning - eight months after endangered newts brought building work to a standstill.
The 47 room Travelodge, off Leisure Way, was opened by Lowestoft mayor Frank Mortimer.
It was due to open in time for Christmas, but the project was delayed last year when great crested newts - which are protected by law - were found living in a pond on the site and had to be moved.
The new hotel - one of five from Travelodge as part of an �18m expansion scheme - has created 12 full-time jobs in the town.
