A NIGHTCLUB in Durham has closed its doors after ten years in the city.

The management of Loveshack, and its sister venue My House, which are in the Walkergate area of the city announced they were shutting on Wednesday.

A statement released on Wednesday said: "It is with a heavy heart that we are writing to inform you that Loveshack and My House are now closed.

"We are in the process of selling the business and would like to thank all team members for their efforts and enthusiasm over the years.

"Looking forward, we wish the new owners the best of luck for the future."

Loveshack opened in 2007 and the venue underwent a substantial refurbishment last year, when My House, which offered daytime food and drinks, opened.
