A sign in the window of the chain’s outlet on The Moor explained: “We’re sorry but we’ve had to temporarily close our store for essential maintenance. We’ll be open again shortly. We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused.”

The shutters were down, and stools were stacked on tables inside, but the lights in the shop had been left switched on.

But today the bakery was trading busily as normal.
