A POPULAR Carlisle nightspot will not open its doors this weekend due to staffing issues - including some positive covid tests at the venue.

The cocktail bar located on Botchergate has not yet said when the doors will re-open.

In a statement, Havana said: "Due to seasonal circumstances with a combination of positive tests, normal seasonal illness but with negative tests, travel disruptions, and an imminent birth we do not have enough of a crew left to open this weekend.

"Sorry for any inconvenience caused, we shall return with a healthy crew soon."
