TESCO Metro in Bournemouth remains closed today 24 hours after staff were forced to shut up shop to a water leak.

Staff at the store placed signs on the doors and windows yesterday which said: "Store closed due to water leak, sorry for any inconvenience caused."

The store, in Bournemouth Square, is popular with visitors and town centre workers.

A steady stream of people were seen reading the signs today before heading off to other shops.

Shelves were almost empty at the nearby M&S food outlet inside WHSmith.
