A popular Wetherspoon’s pub in Staffordshire has been forced to close – after being left a foot under water. Photos of Stafford’s Picture House show the bar area has been totally submerged in the floods.
The Bridge Street venue will remain closed until further notice while the full extent of the damage can be assessed.
Anyone still hankering for an all-day brunch or a Sunday roast is instead encouraged to visit Stafford’s other Wetherspoon, The Butler’s Bell, which has recently been saved from closure following a campaign.
The flooding comes as large parts of the town remain under water after the River Sow burst its banks yesterday.
