Fashion store Zara has confirmed that it plans to reopen in Belfast city centre "as soon as possible".

The Spanish retailer was forced to close its Donegall Place store in August 2018 when a fire broke out at nearby Primark.

A cordon erected around Bank Buildings in the aftermath of the blaze meant a total of 14 businesses, including Zara, could not open.

Since the August 28 fire, some businesses have been able to reopen thanks to the erection of a temporary walkway

While no opening date has been made known there have been rumours on social media this week that Zara could reopen in April.

It is not known if the retailer will reopen at its current location at Donegall Place. Currently, the building remains within the cordon and behind hoarding.

Zara has been contacted for comment.
