The Jump Division building at New Venture Business Park, Pemberton

Jump Division in Pemberton announced on social media that it was having to shut down on Sunday this week because it could no longer use its present home.

Bosses declined to explain further for now, but told Wigan Today that they may give further details at a later date.

In the last few days of trading the business was still taking bookings on its website but it is not clear how many people have been inconvenienced by later bookings now having to be cancelled.
