A pub whose landlord is believed to have jumped from a ferry to his death after nearly £30,000 was stolen from its customers' Christmas savings club has closed.
The Royal Oak in Shrewton near Salisbury has temporarily stopped trading, brewery chain Enterprise Inns said.
The body of the landlord, 59-year-old Malcolm Levesconte was found in the sea off Dover, Kent, on Christmas Eve. He was last seen on December 9 boarding a ferry for France after the theft from the Christmas savings club at his pub.
Wiltshire Police have said they have been working on the theory that he had been propping up his failing pub business with money from the fund. The death is being treated as non-suspicious.
People in the village of Shrewton in Wiltshire who lost Christmas savings of £29,000 are due to receive replacement funds later today.
Residents had been saving in a thrift club at a local pub the Royal Oak. Police are still searching for its landlord Malcolm Levesconte who's been missing since early December. They believe he may have taken his own life.
