Posters displayed in the store on Westgate Street, which is near Primark and Marks & Spencer, say that the shop will close on Saturday, July 13.

The sign reads: "This store is closing on 13th July. Visit your nearest Monsoon in Debenhams."

The closure of the fashion store, which caters for women and children, is the latest high street store to leave the town.

It follows the footsteps of Argos, Ohh Deer, Trespass and Riley & Riley Jewellers in the Buttermarket - which have all closed down in recent weeks.

Monsoon also has stores in Colchester and Bury St Edmunds - along with concessions in Debenhams.

Earlier this year, Monsoon wrongly declared that it was planning to close its Ipswich store, after what was said to be an 'internal miscommunication'.

Monsoon have been approached for comment - but at this time the reason for the closure is still unknown.
