A popular restaurant and takeaway in Huntingdonshire has closed after five years. 

Eric's Fish and Chips, in St Ives, opened its doors for the final time on July 5.

In a post on social media, owner Eric Snaith said "it was run for a fun five years by dedicated father and son team Alan and Rhys". 

As well as thanking local customers, he went on to explain the reason behind the closure.

Mr Snaith added: "Our food business began in Norfolk in 1988, when my mum and dad first bought Tichwell Manor, which I have been running since 2010.

"Since then, we've opened award-winning fish and chip restaurants in Thornham and Holt, and Eric's Pizza in Thornham and Norwich. 

"Our future focus will continue to be our Norfolk nosh, so please join us at one of our restaurants in our Norfolk dining family soon."
