Libraries in Wyre Forest have closed until further notice in response to the latest Government guidelines to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Bewdley, Kidderminster and Stourport libraries did not open their doors on Tuesday.

A spokesman from Worcestershire County Council said: "This is to support the government advice on social distancing.

"We have extended the return date for all library loans until further notice which will ensure that customers do not need to renew their library loans and will not build up library fines. Unfortunately we will not be able to meet any outstanding reservations or accept new reservations."

Free e-books, e-audiobooks and e-magazines and other online services will be available by visiting
