A SOMERSET branch of WH Smith will be relocating - temporarily - while renovation work is carried out.

The firm will be closing its Weston-super-Mare store at 44 High Street and relocating to 21 Sovereign Centre at the end of the month to allow for renovation works to the building.

The High Street store will close on January 26 and WH Smith will open at the temporary premises in the Sovereign Shopping Centre the following week.

The work is expected to be completed in the summer.
