Saffron Walden pub, The Temeraire, will be shut until lunchtime today following heavy rain last night.

The popular pub and eatery, in High Street, was forced to close when storms hit last night, causing damage and floods across the county.

A spokesman for Wetherspoon said: “Following the heavy rain storm in the area, last night, many premises in the high street are flooded or closed, including The Temeraire.

“Staff hired equipment and cleared water overnight, from 1am until now. The kitchen has been completely cleaned and a professional carpet cleaner is due in tomorrow.

“The pub is hoping to reopen for lunchtime, today. We apologise to customers for any inconvenience caused.”
