The Acapulco, on Waterhouse Street, which has been dubbed as 'the oldest night club in the UK', will temporarily remain closed until further notice after shutting its doors for the first in its 59-year history back in March.

A spokesman from the venue said the decision to remain closed is due to health and safety concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic.

He said: "We have made this decision with the interest of the health of our staff, customers and their families, including ultimately the general public of Halifax and the surrounding areas that currently we remain closed for the moment, however we look to reopen soon.
