An Essex steakhouse has started to sink “like the Titanic” into a lake at a shopping centre.
The Miller and Carter steakhouse housed in a converted paddle steamer began sinking at Lakeside Shopping Centre in Essex on Friday, with the company announcing it would be closed until “further notice”.
The centre’s management has said the closure is due to “structural issues”, with a statement informing potential customers that they would be contacting “every guest as soon as possible” as for “safety reasons we are unable to access our restaurant to answer any phone calls”.
They added that the management would be calling all guests with upcoming bookings and apologised for any inconvenience caused.
One witness said the restaurant was “going down like the Titanic.”
Essex County Fire and Rescue Service added: “We were informed of the incident, but as no one was onboard (after the evacuation) there were no life risks and therefore we were not required to attend.”
