Walked past The Charles Dickens this morning and it was being boarded up.

Anyone know why? (please don't say it's closing)

Noticed this morning it was being boarded up, also noticed the smashed in ground floor windows along the flats next to it.

its related to the recent spat of window bricking thats gone on in the area...

Are the Police any closer to finding who is responsible for bricking these windows?

Yesterday, the right hand window of The Charles Dickens was defo not broken, and it looked like the left wasn't either - that's why I didn't relate the happenings in Union St to the CD.

Perhaps they bored up to be safe. I counted 7 boarded windows next to TCD - hope they catch the idiot soon.

Went past the pub last week, and it was closed again. Refurbishment or more flats?

A refurb, apparently.
