A RESTAURANT in Weymouth has had to close for a few hours due to having no power.

Staff of The Marquis of Granby on Chickerell Road posted on social media today that they have had to close until 2pm.

They said: "This is currently being worked on and as soon as we are up and running we will let you know. From 2pm we will be open all day, serving food until 8pm.

"If you have a table booked today before 2pm, please get in contact as we can get this rearranged for you. Our phone lines are currently down due to this, if you need to contact us please call 07778 642225.

"Apologies for any inconvenience."

A spokeswoman for SSEN said the power outage was caused by an issue with underground cabling but was only affecting the one property.

Engineers are currently on site and a generator was on its way to get the Marquis up and running again.
