A POPULAR Lymington pub has closed its doors after receiving a call from NHS track and trace staff.

The Mayflower in King's Saltern Road posted a message on Facebook yesterday warning it would be closed last night.

It said: "As a precautionary measure and in an effort to ensure the safety of our team and guests we have taken the decision to close this evening following a call by track and trace.

"We are sanitising the pub and getting our team tested. We will be reopening very shortly and look forward to seeing you all.

"Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries on info@mayflower.co.uk."

Customers at pubs and restaurants are encouraged to leave their details so people can be traced in the event of positive coronavirus test.
