THE front of Burger King in Taunton has been stripped following its closure.

The fast food giant closed the High Street branch on Saturday (May 31) and has since got to work removing the large letters from the front.

Most of the furniture is also being prepared to be removed.

In a statement, the firm said: "In the course of normal business, Burger King Worldwide continuously reviews its restaurant portfolio and makes strategic decisions based on many factors, including market conditions, restaurant profitability, lease length and overall brand presence.

"We do not comment regarding specific development opportunities."
