Dover Castle has reopened today (June 2) after the water supply to the historic site failed.

The attraction was closed over the Bank Holiday weekend, with the initial announcement made at 9am on Monday (May 31).

Staff cited "situations beyond our control" as the cause for the outage.

Any customers who had booked in to visit on May 31 and June 1 will have their tickets automatically refunded within 10 working days, English Heritage confirmed.

Though water supply was reconnected on Tuesday (June 1), the castle remained closed while the supply got back up and running.
