AHEAD of the busy Saturday shopping rush Ipswich Borough Council have announced today Crown Car park is to be closed until further notice.

One of the town's biggest car parks, the multi-storey in Crown Street, near to Crown Pools, has been closed for emergency repairs.

Contractors have been called in to investigate, carry out a full report and consider the possible need for repairs.

Motorists whose cars are already in the car park will still be able to exit after it is closed but no new customers will be admitted after 2pm today.

A spokesman for the Borough council apologised for any inconvenience caused and urged motorists to use alternative car parks in and around the town centre until further notice, including the town's park and ride services.

An emergency structural engineering report is due to be carried out and should be completed early next week.
