A POPULAR Bournemouth fish and chip shop will be reopening its takeaway and delivery services later today, Wednesday, June 30. 

Chez Fred in Westbourne closed its doors last week after four staff members contracted coronavirus who the restaurant said had met up socially outside of work. 

The eatery in Seamoor Road said the closure was a "precautionary measure" but "essential". 

They have now been given the green light to reopen the takeaway, click and collect and home delivery side of the business from today, Wednesdat, June 30 from 4.30pm.
