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.
