Exclusive: Infamous 'Marmite' building is scrapped as new plans for shop and flats is unveiled for Wisbech High Street

The Fenland Citizen can exclusively reveal that plans for 'The Gap' dubbed the Marmite building because of the strong reaction it provoked when it was first suggested as part of the redevelopment of the town's High Street, have been replaced with proposals to create a new retail unit with flats above.
