A WEST Cumbrian bubble tea shop has closed 'for the time being' due to unforeseen circumstances.

Bubble Bee, a bubble tea shop on Main Street in Cockermouth, has closed saying they are 'not sure they will be open again'.

In a sign displayed on the shop window, the business said: "We apologise that we will be closed for the time being due to some unforeseen circumstances.

"We currently are not certain we will be opening again but we will continue to keep you updated on our Facebook page."

The shop first announced its closure on social media on January 11, and has since displayed a sign in the store.

The business describes itself as an 'authentic bubble milk tea café' also serving food such as mochi and a lunchtime menu for customers.
