Agency Visit York says city is open for business

York's tourist agency says the city remains open for business.

Visit York say that despite high river levels, they remain well within the city's defences and most attractions, shops, bars and restaurants in York remain open for business.

Some businesses, near to the river, have had to close their doors to deal with flooding.

Gillian Cruddas, chief executive of Visit York, said: "We would like to reassure all those planning to visit York in the coming days, that the city is fully open for business."

"Today is a beautiful sunny autumn day in York, showcasing the city at its finest. The city's annual food festival is in full swing and thousands of visitors are enjoying the local produce on offer."
