A betting shop in Stroud town centre has recently closed down. 

The shop is located on Gloucester Street, a prominent position in the Stroud town centre. 

This sign in the shop window - which appeared recently - simply says that the Ladbrokes shop in Gloucester Street is closed and the nearest one can be found in Russell Street.

There is also one in Bath Road in Stonehouse.

In the UK, you need to be at least 18 to gamble legally.

Ladbrokes claim that they are committed to helping their customers gamble in a safer and more responsible way. 

The Government launched a review at the end of 2020 to ensure gambling laws are fit for the digital age.
