Another East Lancashire pub has been forced to close its doors due to the coronavirus.

The Grey Mare at Belthorn announced last week that it would be closing until June 20 due to a number of staff members having to self-isolate.

The Grey Mare joins the Clog & Billycock and the Butlers Arms, who also had to close their doors last week because of Covid-19.

A post on the Grey Mare's Facebook page on Thursday read: "Customer notice.

"Due to staff members having to self isolate due to Covid-19, it’s with heavy heart we will have to close until Sunday 20 June.

"We will be contacting everyone who has made a booking.

"We are sorry for any inconvenience caused but we have to put the safety of our staff and customers first.

"We look forward to reopening on Sunday 20 June.

"For now everyone stay safe.

"Steve and Becky and all the team at The Grey Mare."
