New Bombay restaurant closed after fire

New Bombay

The New Bombay Restaurant, which suffered fire damage on Sunday afternoon, will be closed for the foreseeable future says the owner.

As they now decide what to do next, they told the Bedford Independent that they would like to thank their customers and the wider Bedford community for their well wishes and support during a difficult time. 

They add they hope to be open again as soon as possible.

Harpur Street and surrounding roads were closed for several hours as Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service tackled the blaze on Sunday.
