A DENTIST practice in the town centre has been unexpectedly forced to close due to a gas leak.

The team at MyDentist, on Peel Street, has issued a warning to expectant patients to not attend appointments for today (February 16).

The gas leak has made it unsafe for staff and patients. The team are working to solve the problem.

A spokesperson for the dentist said: “If you have an appointment with us today please do not attend.

“We will be posting another update when we know more regarding the situation.

“We apologise for the inconvenience and thank you for your co-operation.”
