A pub in Evesham has been forced to close due to flooding.

The Old Swanne Inne on the high street is closed after a flood in the basement.

A spokesperson for Wetherspoons, who owns the bar, says this caused the electrics to trip.

They confirmed that Western Power had been called out to deal with the issue.

"A flood in the old basement tripped the electrics," said the spokesperson.

"Western Power had to come out to isolate all electric supply to the building in order to pump the water out.

"All due to a faulty sump pump essentially."

At the moment, the pub is waiting for all of the water to be pumped out before electrics can be reinstated.

It is not yet clear when the bar will be able to reopen.
