Debenhams in Orford Place was hit by the heavy rain over the weekend which has affected electrics in the store.

It is understood the third floor was the worst affected area and water was going through the ceiling.

A member of staff said the Warehouse concession shop in the main store had been badly hit with stock ruined.

At one stage a sign said the shop was set to reopen at 12pm but it was updated without a specific time.

"It said: "Due to a flood we are unable to trade at this present time. We apologise for any inconvenience caused."

Building maintenance were outside the shop as work continued following the flood.
