Rusty Shears, Whitby - back open

Bothams of Whitby's store on Enterprise Way is welcoming people back after shutting last Thursday.

They posted on social media that some of the shop's team had been in contact with friends or relations who had tested positive for Covid-19.

None of their team were showing any symptoms of the disease but they said they were closing as a precaution until all eligible staff members had received their tests back.
