A gaming centre in Braintree’s High Street has closed down after less than two years of trading.

Much to the dismay of local shoppers, Lethal Gaming, which opened in December 2013, has announced it has shut.

A post on the Lethal Gaming Limited’s Facebook page read: “Gamers, due to unforeseen circumstances Lethal Gaming is now closed.

“We would like to thank everyone who helped and supported the company and helped create a gaming community.

“We apologise in advance but any questions asked cannot be answered or discussed for legal reasons.”
