Subway in Newtown has permanently closed with a loss of two jobs.

The sandwich franchise at Bradleys Costcutter on Llanidloes Road has been closed since March 23.

Two people have been made redundant while another two members of staff have been given new roles within the business.

In a statement, Bradleys Costcutter said: "It is with a heavy heart that today we are announcing the permanent closure of Subway.

"We've had a blast over the last six years but unfortunately with the current situation with Covid-19 and social distancing combined with the uncertain times ahead we believe that now is the right time to call it a day.

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank our dedicated sandwich artists and amazing customers for the support over the last six years".

Discussions are on-going about what will take Subway's place at the Llanidloes Road store.

Subway franchises in Welshpool and Llanidloes remain open.
