A Barrow-based hair salon has announced it will be closed for a week following staff members testing positive for Covid-19.

Ken Riley’s, based on Crellin Street, was closed on Friday and will remain as such until October 30 as a precaution, as the health and safety of staff and customers is a priority to them.

It apologised for any inconvenience on Facebook and announced that a thermal fogging deep clean has taken place to neutralise any threat of the virus.

All the relevant people have been contacted.
