North Street's Starbucks was closed today (Thursday February 6) and a sign in the shop's window read: "Unfortunately we are unable to open today due to unforeseen circumstances."

A spokesman for Starbucks said: "Our store on North Street, Chichester, was closed due to an issue with the plumbing that resulted in some mild flooding. Maintenance is underway and we hope to reopen the store in the coming days."

The district council was not involved in the decision to close the shop and will be working with Starbucks to help re-open 'as soon as possible'.

A spokesman for Chichester District Council said: “We have been made aware that Starbucks have taken the decision to temporarily close their North Street premises. We weren’t involved in this decision, but we are now working with Starbucks to help them reopen as soon as possible.”
