A BURST pipe has forced a Bournemouth store to close for refurbishment.

Solutions Inc in Old Christchurch Road will for closed for some time according to a notice pinned in the window.

It states: "Unfortunately due to a flood occurring we are having to close for a shop refit across the coming weeks.

"We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding."

A pipe running above the ground floor shop burst and flooded the building last weekend, and therefore the ceiling and floor will be replaced.

The company, which sells and repairs Apple products, has other stores in Chelmsford, Chichester, Guildford, Hove and St Albans.
