Well-known high street food brand Subway is to return to Felixstowe four months after closing its doors.

The Subway branch in Hamilton Road has been closed since July - but now it has emerged that the site is to re-open under new management.

The store will officially re-open on December 4.

A spokesman for Subway said: "Subway is delighted to confirm that a new store will be opening in Felixstowe on December 4.

"It will be opening under a new, highly-experienced franchisee as his seventh store.

"He and his team look forward to welcoming guests back to Felixstowe very soon."

There had been growing concerns about the future of the seaside resort's high street after a number of stores closed their doors.

The most high profile of these was Marks and Spencer in Hamilton Road, which has been empty since April this year.
