A CITY garden centre has been forced to close today (September 30) due to a power outage.

St. Peter's Garden Centre closed its doors to customers whilst Western Power attempted to fix the problem.

A statement on the centre's Facebook page read: "Customer notice: Just to let you all know we have had a power cut and as a result we have been forced to close for the rest of today.

"Western Power are trying to fix it and we should be fine by tomorrow. See you all soon."
