Fire Alarm Closes Fort Regent

Fort Regent has been forced to close this morning after a fire alarm went off.

Staff at the St Helier leisure centre say they don't know how long it will be closed, but the complex won't re-open until the cause of the problem is found:

"We do not know how long this will take but at present we cannot open the centre. All activities are suspended until we can identify the cause of the problem."

In a further update on social media, the centre announced it would re-open a short time later:
