A WATER leak forced a Tesco store to close its doors.

The Tesco Express store on London Road, Portsmouth was temporarily closed on Tuesday night and reopened again this morning.

A Tesco spokesman said: ‘We noticed a leak from the flats above our store and decided to close while we worked to have it fixed. A maintenance team attended and the leak has now been stopped.

‘The store has been thoroughly cleaned and is ready for customers as usual. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this might have caused.’
