New restaurant launch in Leeds raises hundreds for charity

"Paparazzi" greeted guests as Martin House Hospice fundraisers collected money

There were singing waiters, Emmerdale stars and even paparazzi at the launch of a new restaurant in Leeds last night.

"Vinny and Vito" is set up in the style of two brothers from Tuscany, who set up a restaurant using their mother's legendary recipes.

The launch event, at the De Vere Village Leeds North, raised hundreds of pounds for Martin House Hospice.
