Fleetwood Museum has advised visitors that it will be closed for the rest of the week after a volunteer tested positive for Covid-19.

The museum, on Queens Terrace, reopened with a host of new exhibits back in July after months of closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But the popular amenity will now have to close again until further notice.

A statement on the museum's Facebook stated: "Sadly one of our volunteers has tested positive for Coronavirus.

"As a precaution we are closing the museum and book shop for the rest of this week and are undertaking a deep clean of the museum site.

"We will update you on plans to reopen."

Among the new exhibits this year is an exciting look at the history of Fisherman’s Friend from its humble beginnings with a chemist shop in Lord Street to the international multi-million pound company it is today.

As well as telling the story of the lozenge company’s success, there are a selection of unseen pieces from the company’s early days, including one surviving original bottle.

There’s also some footage from TV advertisements in the 1980’s and the ambience of the display is finished off with scents in the air which reflect the factory’s familiar menthol smell.
