A pub in a village near Sudbury has announced its sudden closure. 

The White Hart in Boxford announced on social media that it was closing "for the foreseeable future".

In December last year, the pub was taken over by Spectre Leisure. 

The statement reads: "Unfortunately, due to circumstances out of our control, we are devastated to announce this to you all."

"We'd like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our customers who have come through our doors at The White Hart."

"We have worked tirelessly to avoid the closure of The White Hart, however the circumstances that have caused this are out of our control."

The White Hart has been contacted for further comment on the closure.
