A Spanish tapas restaurant in Flackwell Heath has closed down due to a lack of staff.

La Bodega Del Vino took to social media to tell customers that it will close finding it "difficult" to hire staff.

Many locals replied expressing their disappointment with the restaurant responding with "no staff, no restaurant" and labelling health as "more important".

The family-run restaurant on Straight Bit has roots stemming back to the region of Galicia with many of the dishes typical of the region.

The social media post said: "It is with deep regret that we have to close our business for good.

"Thank you to everyone that has supported us over the years."

The building was previously occupied by Radhuni, an Indian takeaway, but it is still unclear who will take on the site next.
