WEST WIGHT Alpacas has closed for the foreseeable future but intends to a run a takeaway and delivery service, for pizzas and other items.

A statement from the company based at Wellow, said: "Today is a very sad day for us all.

"We have decided as a socially responsible company that after government advice we have closed with immediate effect.

"The cafe will remain closed as long as the government is suggesting social isolation, however we are taking advice from industry bodies and our insurers to see if we can get the farm park element of our attraction open again reasonably soon."

It says it will update its social media and hopes to run its take-out food service from the weekend.
