ITALIAN restaurant Prezzo in the Kingfisher Shopping Centre is closing due to coronavirus.

The chain said it was temporarily closing it restaurants during the COVID-19 crisis.

A spokesman said: "We need to do this in order to protect the health of our teams, our customers and our local communities.

"After the Government stated last Monday that people should avoid restaurants, it was always going to be question of when, not if, we would need to close our doors for a time.

"Our Prezzo people will be working in their usual committed fashion to temporarily close our restaurants down in an orderly and planned manner.

"Those same Prezzo people are at the centre of my thinking and our planning. We appreciate the support of all stakeholders. I want us to return stronger than before and with renewed determination to deliver our mission – every customer leaving wanting to return. And return we will."
