Winstones Ice Cream shop on Rodborough Common has closed after crowds were spotted queueing outside yesterday.

Despite the government advising people to avoid unnecessary social contact in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, dozens were seen in close proximity on the common.

A post on the Winstones Facebook page yesterday said: "After the extremely large amount of people that have descended on Winstones we have tried to manage queues as best as possible but with all large numbers this can be difficult, with this in mind we feel our only option is to close until further notice with immediate effect.

"We have put a large amount of safety measures in place and have followed all government guidelines.

"We thank you all for your long-standing support."
