A HIGH Street pub has shut due to a water leak today.

The John Russell Fox displayed signs early this morning announcing due to 'unforeseen circumstances' it would not be able to open until further notice.

A spokesperson for the Wetherspoon pub said it had had to shut due to a water leak that was found coming through light fittings.

The pub is currently waiting while maintenance workers and electricians sort out the issue.

They apologised for any inconvenience caused adding the pub would be 'up and running as soon as possible.'
