KEIGHLEY Playhouse has cancelled this week's performances of Agatha Christie whodunnit Witness for the Prosecution.

The amateur theatre group pulled the plug on its production of the popular drama after taking government advice on coronavirus.

Playhouse spokesman Barbara Boothroyd said: "We did put on one performance on Monday to a limited audience but the decision was taken afterwards to cancel the rest of the run.

"The committee also decided to cancel our next production of Lucky Sods due to go out in May."
