A play centre owner could have been left counting the cost after his company website was shut down - causing customers to believe wrongly that the business was closing down.

Layden-Grant Seymour, whose family runs the 4 FUN centre at Saxmundham, said many made contact after the problems with the centre's Facebook page, emails and website.

However, Mr Seymour said his firm had now set up a new website and a new Facebook page.

"Customers have been phoning the centre constantly which means some customers cannot get through. This has fuelled lots of rumours. People think we are closing down which is definitely not the case - 4 FUN is now stronger than ever," he said.

Mr Seymour's family is in the middle of opening up a cafe and restaurant in Aldeburgh and has featured in a Channel 5 documentary about hard-working large families - said the incident had caused rumours about the business to spread.
