An Ipswich town centre restaurant has closed its doors for the foreseeable future due to emergency maintenance.

The Pizza Express in Key Street has an A4 sign attached to the glass door informing customers the restaurant is closed, thanking patrons for their patience.

A Suffolk Highways spokesman said: “The site in Key Street are emergency works carried out on behalf of Pizza Express due to a broken water pipe.

“An investigation will be carried out tomorrow, Tuesday, December 4, in a bit to find the source of the problem.”

The length of the closure to the popular restaurant is dependent on the location and extent of the damage to the site and its water works.
