The owners of a popular Kilwinning takeaway have announced that they will not be opening back up following a sudden closure.

Ho's Dragon House Chinese Takeaway has been shut in recent weeks after a number of years serving the local area.

The owners have now stepped in the clear up any confusion surrounding the business.

They have said that the shop will not be re-opening and that they have had to give this up due to family circumstances.

The owners added that there is no truth surrounding other rumours around their reason for closing.

A spokesperson said: "I've been getting messages from a few customers to why we've closed all of sudden and asking when we'll be opening back up.

"Unfortunately due to family circumstances, we have to give up the shop.

"There is some rumours online about why we've closed - none of them are true.

"Thank you for your custom over the years."
