A FORMER pub in Taunton town centre has been boarded up after reports of anti-social behaviour.

The town council said residents described the Henry’s unit on High Street as an “eyesore” and arranged to have it boarded up.

The authority also said artwork will soon be added to make the former pub look more attractive.

A Taunton Town Council spokesperson said: “We received reports of anti-social behaviour around the former Henry's unit and you told us that you thought it was an eyesore.

“Using our Town Improvements Fund we arranged to have it boarded up, and @GoCreate will shortly be adding artwork to make it look more attractive.”
