An independent Swedish bakery and café in Salisbury is set to close for good due to the Covid pandemic.

The Swedish Den, which opened in Catherine Street in spring 2019, has been serving the city with cinnamon buns and other baked goods, as well as hot dogs and traditional Swedish meatballs.

The business announced in an Instagram post: "With a very heavy heart and as a consequence of the pandemic, we have sadly been forced to close the Swedish Den.

"Thank you for all the wonderful support you have shown us. We hope you have enjoyed our Swedish flair.

"So now it's 'Tack och hej' (thanks and goodbye) from us 👋🏻"

The café aimed to bring Sweden to the UK through the country's classic treats, as well as interior design, which included a carved and painted horse statue, known traditionally as Dala.
