Dewsbury's 'The Time Piece' Wetherspoons restaurant hit the headlines this weekend after an out-of-control car smashed through its front window.

And after its closure this weekend, regulars now are waiting to hear when the Northgate branch will open.

Wetherspoon spokesman Eddie Gershon said: “ The incident at The Time Piece pub on Saturday was a complete shock to everyone.

“Fortunately no one was injured as a result of the crash.

“Structural engineers will be assessing the pub, but in the meantime it remains closed and at present there is no date set for its reopening.”

Mr Gershon also confirmed that staff would be relocated to nearby pubs and will be paid in full.
