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

It is understood that a fire service officer needs to survey the building to ensure it is safe before the shop - or part of it - reopens.

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

The majority of the first floor has been cordoned off.

Debenhams was closed all of Monday and there are still signs up this morning saying: "Due to a flood we are unable to trade at this present time. We apologise for any inconvenience caused."

A Debenhams spokesman said: "Unfortunately we are temporarily closed due to the store being flooded.

"We will be up and running as soon as possible but as yet we do not have a date/time when that will be."

Stock however is still being delivered to the store.
