An independent restaurant which was set to shut down has moved its closing date.

We previously reported Villaggio Pizza in Eaglesham revealed it would be closing its doors on Saturday, June 1.

Announcing the sad news originally, bosses of the business revealed they wanted to let their children - who work at the pizzeria - embark on their own careers and also turn their attention more closely to another business.

However, the pizza spot has taken to social media to announce it will now be shutting down on Saturday, June 8 instead.

A spokesperson for the eatery on social media said: "We’re on to update you all on a change to our closing date.

"We have been absolutely blown away with all your lovely comments both on our page and in person in the shop.

"We will make more and try to stop disappointing you.

"So to help this you now have another week before we close."
