Starbucks coffee shop in Hornchurch has closed until further notice after a flood in the store.

The store closed at the weekend after firefighters were called on Sunday (October 21) at around 7am.

A spokeswoman from the London Fire Brigade said one fire engine attended the scene in High Street, and it was reported that flooding from flats above the store caused damage to the coffee shop.

Firefighters were unable to gain access to the flats, and the store has now put a note in the window that states it will be “closed until further notice”.
