A POPULAR 60s themed cafe in Colchester town centre has closed for good.

Back to the 60s, a unique venue which was decked out with Mod memorabilia including Vespa scooters, closed its Priory Walk premises for the last time today.

The cafe was a joint venture between former caretaker Dean Walker and his partner Lynda Street and the couple posted a message on the cafe's Facebook page to announce the news.

They said: "I’m really sorry to say that our cafe has now closed.

"We would like to thank you all for your custom support and kind words.

"We have had no option but have to leave due to leasing issues.

"We have loved meeting lots of you and hopefully see you around.

"Take care everyone from Dean, Lynda and our brilliant staff."
