FAST food chain Burger King is shutting its Taunton restaurant this weekend.

The store, on High Street, will close its doors for the final time on Saturday (May 31).

In a statement, the firm said: "In the course of normal business, Burger King Worldwide continuously reviews its restaurant portfolio and makes strategic decisions based on many factors, including market conditions, restaurant profitability, lease length and overall brand presence.

"We do not comment regarding specific development opportunities."

The County Gazette asked what is happening to existing staff at the restaurant, but a spokesman said they were unable to comment further.
