Unfortunately, we have experienced further issues with the lock on the door to our facility and a new part is now needed to resolve the issue.

Our contractors are waiting for delivery of the required part, and as soon as it arrives, they will be able to carry out the necessary repairs. 

As soon as we have a time scale for completing these repairs, we will update our website.

We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this closure of our facilities is causing and appreciate our customers continue patience at this time.

Our contractors have been on site this morning, and the Elsan is now working again.

Unfortunately, since being re-opened this morning, the lock to the facilities has been damaged and is preventing access for our customers.

We have raised an urgent job for a lock-smith to attend site, and we aim to have the facilities re-opened within the next 24 hours.

We apologise for the inconvenience this is causing.

As soon as the lock is fixed, we will update our website.

We have temporarily closed the elsan at Beeston Lock customer service facilities in response to a blockage. Our contractors will be attending to fix the problem as soon as possible. This notice will be updated when we are able to provide a date for the completion of this work.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
