Locals plan to buy historic pub

Campaigners in the Scottish Borders are hoping to save a 400 year old pub, by buying it themselves.

The people of Tweedsmuir have to raise 160 thousand pounds before December to stop the Crook Inn from being turned into flats.

The pub was once a favorite haunt of two famous writers; Robert Burns and Sir Walter Scott.
